RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Area School District is working to install vaping detectors in middle and high schools.
Superintendent Dr. Lori Simon says vaping is on the rise and is currently among the top violations.
The district is expressing their concern to Governor Kristi Noem, asking for consideration to help fund the detectors with money from the state’s safety and security grant.
Several schools across South Dakota have installed the detectors and they say they are helping.
Bathrooms and locker rooms are just two of the areas Rapid City would like to install vape detectors.
