News

COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Teen vaping has increased drastically over the years, and local schools have taken a hit.

To tackle the issue, Colonie Central High installed vaping detectors in their bathrooms.  

If a student is vaping the sensor will pick it up. A text and email will then alert the staff.

The school hopes to install nine more detectors throughout the building this fall.
