Resource: Addressing Student Use of E-cigarettes and Other Vaping Products

For the first time since 2000, overall youth tobacco use has increased in Minnesota. The rapid uptake of e-cigarettes and other vaping devices has suddenly reversed a trend of declining teen tobacco use in Minnesota, and recent data show one in five high school students use e-cigarettes, a nearly 50 percent increase since 2014. This toolkit, from the Minnesota Department of Health, provides tools and resources for school staff, including administrators, educators, teachers, and health services staff, who are working to address the use of e-cigarettes and other vaping products in schools. The toolkit outlines opportunities for action that can be taken by various school staff, along with resources and tools to help.
