Responding to the Vaping Crisis

Strategies to curtail student e-cigarette use

October 24, 2023

Key Insights

The rise of e-cigarette use among adolescents requires a coordinated response from school district administrators. Nearly 10% or 2.5 million students used e-cigarettes in 2022 compared to 1.5% in 2011. The U.S. Surgeon General has declared youth e-cigarette use (i.e., vaping) an epidemic. Left unchecked, this epidemic may lead to lifelong nicotine or THC addiction, severe or fatal lung damage, and other serious health consequences.

EAB has profiled districts that implemented prevention and intervention tactics designed to reduce student vaping, aligned with public health expert recommendations. Administrators at these districts incorporate research-backed content and delivery into student-focused prevention campaigns to promote adolescents’ receptiveness of their message.
