Superintendent Owens Saylor says whether or not the devices are hazardous to one’s health, they’re intended for use by adults<br /><br />“We have a parents committee here called the Council of Councils and there’s been some good discussion there about what’s in the health interest of our students,” said Saylor. “So, anything that would even represent smoking or inhalants or anything like that is not appropriate for our students. That’s why we felt like this was really an addition on to our tobacco ban and it’s a way for us to keep up with what’s happening."<br /><br />Saylor also says e-cigarettes became a distraction.<br /><br />“I think we’ve seen them popping up – and we’re learning a couple things. They’re expensive items, to begin with.&nbsp; There were even situations where we had folks complaining that they were being stolen,” said Saylor. “And we’re not about to chase someone’s personal smoking device.”<br /> Fri, 20 Jun 2014 17:42:00 +0000 WKU Public Radio News 49880 at http://wkyufm.org Daviess County Public Schools Bans E-Cigarette Use By Students Top Performing Schools in Daviess County, Owensboro http://wkyufm.org/post/top-performing-schools-daviess-county-owensboro <div class="text_exposed_show">Here's a list of the <strong>Daviess County and Owensboro Independent </strong>schools that received either Distinguished or Proficient ratings in the Unbridled Learning test scores released today:</div><div class="text_exposed_show">&nbsp;</div><div class="text_exposed_show">&nbsp;</div><div class="text_exposed_show">Distinguished: F.T.
