In efforts to educate students on the consequences of vaping/smoking, a new module by the Florida Department of Health will now be offered by the Walton County School District (WCSD). This module will be assigned to students who receive a first offense for vaping/smoking while at school. The three-hour course, which is written specifically for high school students, presents the dangers of tobacco, hazards of e-cigarettes, the manipulation of the industry, and how to develop refusal skills.
WCSD students may complete this course in leiu of 1 day of their imposed suspension.
