BISD Families:


Earlier this year, the Texas legislature passed a new law in an effort to curb what the U.S. Surgeon General declared in 2018 to be an epidemic in the use of e-cigarettes by young people. Since their invention in 2003, e-cigarettes – also called ‘vapes’ – have been determined to be particularly harmful to youth’s health. Almost all vape liquid contains nicotine, which has been determined to have a negative effect on adolescent brain development. Vaping aerosols also contain chemicals linked to serious lung disease.


The new law will impact student discipline practices beginning with the 2023-24 school year. Per House Bill 114 and Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code, any student who possesses, uses, sells, gives or delivers an e-cigarette to another person be removed from class and placed in a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP).  This includes extracurricular events after school hours. 


If a student possesses, uses, sells, gives or delivers to another an e-cigarette, they will face a minimum of 15 days in DAEP, and increased time with each additional offense.  Parents are encouraged to discuss the dangers of vaping with their students.
