E-hallpass, by Eduspire Solutions, is again making headlines. Used by schools all over the country, e-hallpass is not only the ultimate hall pass solution but also a tool to combat the vaping epidemic in schools. The below article originally appeared on the Basehor-Linwood High School’s news website, blhsnews.com, and mentions e-hallpass as a vehicle for monitoring visits to restrooms, which is where much of the school’s vaping occurs.

A statistic from 2018 shows that 20-25% of students currently vape, however a student at the school believes roughly 90% of students have at least tried it.
“Everyone vapes. There’s so many people that do it all the time, which is why I think so many others have at least tried it,” said the student.
This school isn’t the only one dealing with the issues of vaping. Schools throughout the Northeast Kansas region, and the rest of the country are also experiencing issues with keeping vaping off of their campuses. Assistant principal Jared Jackson first noticed the issues surrounding vaping within the school around two years ago.
