Middle and High School Principal Derek Flatter added, school officials are using a Google form which tracks the data and Cottingim shared the ones which resulted in action.

“Mrs. Holly and I are seeing students that do not result in consequence of suspension or more serious types of consequences. We are able to view that data at a moments notice,” he said.

Board member Tim Beneke discussed the OSBA (Ohio School Board Association) Capital Conference and information shared on JUUL and other e-cigarette usage.

“That is a problem we need to track,” he said.
