As of September 1, 2023, House Bill 114 is officially state law.
This new law dictates that any student with a vape pen, e-cigarette, cartridges, or oils in their possession will be removed from class and sent to a disciplinary alternative education program, such as the North East Alternative Center or In School Suspension.
This is now state law and a Student Code of Conduct violation. NEISD does not have any disciplinary discretion here.
Vaping comes with harmful health risks and will now result in a serious disruption to your child’s education. Tips related to drugs, such as vaping, is one of several categories listed on our NEISD tipline (neisd.net/tipline). Please utilize this resource as we continue to work together to keep our neighborhood schools safe.
