Automatic DAEP Placement for Vape Users
Dear Lamar CISD Community,
As we prepare for the start of the school year, we want to inform you about a significant legislative change that will directly impact our school community.
On September 1, 2023, House Bill 114 (HB 114), will go into effect, which is a law that aims to address the serious issue of vaping/e-cigarette use among students. Under this law, any student found in possession of any kind of vaping/e-cigarette device on campus premises will face immediate and automatic placement in a Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP).
Furthermore, the law states that a student shall be removed from class and placed in DAEP if the student engages in conduct involving a public school that contains the elements of the offense of false alarm or report under Section 42.06, Penal Code, or terroristic threat under Section 22.07, Penal Code.
The Alternative Learning Center (ALC) is the DAEP at Lamar CISD.
We take the health and well-being of our students seriously, and we recognize the importance of creating a safe and conducive learning environment. Vaping, despite being marketed as a safer alternative to traditional smoking, poses significant health risks. The rise of vaping incidents among adolescents necessitates decisive action to protect our students and promote responsible choices.
Additionally, we want to assure you that our school staff and administrators are committed to creating a supportive environment for our students. If any student is struggling with vaping addiction or peer pressure, we are here to help. Our counseling services are available to provide guidance, support, and resources to address such challenges.
It is crucial that we work together to educate our students about the dangers of vaping and to support them in making positive choices for their health and future.
We thank you for your cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our campus directly.

The term includes any device that is manufactured, distributed, or sold as an e-cigarette, e-cigar, or epipe or under another product name or description and a component, part, or accessory for the device, regardless of whether the component, part, or accessory is sold separately from the device.
