Underage Vaping. What you need to know.

Franklin ISD, like many other school districts, has seen a recent increase in student vaping. The
numerous negative effects of vaping warrant all of us at Franklin ISD to take the issue very
seriously. Vaping is not only against school policy; it is also dangerous for a person’s health.
Unfortunately, there is varying information and misunderstanding involving vaping and
electronic cigarettes in circulation. We hope to inform you on the issue and to share some
resources to help you separate fact from fiction.
