Children - like adults - are increasingly trying electronic cigarettes, according to the first large national study to gauge use by middle and high school students. About 2 percent of the students said they'd used an e-cigarette in the previous month, according to a survey done in 2012. That was up from 1 percent in 2011. Results were released Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)

The Huntley District 158 School Board voted to ban e-cigarettes Thursday night.

Under the ban, students caught with an electronic cigarette at school could face suspension or expulsion.

Officials say they've seen more students possessing e-cigarettes at Huntley High School and in the district's middle school and on school buses.
