This school year, hundreds of students were transferred to a disciplinary alternative school due to vaping. 

The new Texas law states: “A program of educational and support services may be provided to a student and the student’s parents when the offense involves drugs, e-cigarettes, or alcohol as specified under Section 37.006 or 37.007.
