(November 20, 2019) The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has joined Governor Parson, the Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), and the Department of Public Safety to launch the “Clear the Air” youth vaping awareness campaign.

The goal of the campaign is to provide both parents and educators resources to be better informed on the risks of vaping - and on how to identify vaping devices and the signs of their use.
