The Orrville City School District’s board of education has officially accepted the district’s portion of a class action lawsuit against e-cigarette maker Juul. As part of the lawsuit’s settlement, Juul agreed to pay $438 million to schools in 33 different states, including Ohio. Orrville City Schools’ share of the settlement will be $20,000. According to Superintendent Jon Ritchie, the district will receive half of the money this fall, while the remaining $10,000 will be paid out over the next four years. The district has yet to say what it plans to do with the money.
