JANESVILLE—The Janesville School Board District announced Wednesday that the school board voted to expel three high school students.

All are eligible for early reinstatement.

Two were expelled for engaging in sexual activity on school grounds. The third was expelled for bringing a BB gun to school.

The district doesn't share the names of schools or genders of expelled students, so no other details were given.

The two students expelled for sexual activity are expelled for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year and the entire 2014-15 school year, including summer school. They can apply for reinstatement for the fall semester of the 2014-15 school year.

The student possessing the BB gun is expelled until age 21 but can apply for early reinstatement during fall of the 2015-16 school year.

To be reinstated, all three students must attend an alternative school and continue to earn credits, get mental health counseling, comply with probation, take prescribed medication and obey all laws.

Upon reinstatement, the students involved in sexual activity must, until 2018: continue to comply with their juvenile justices case plans; continue counseling; participate in educational programming regarding the risks and dangers of teenage sexual activity; regularly attend class with absences monitored; complete assignments and maintain satisfactory behavior.

The student possessing a BB gun must comply with the same restrictions with the exception of sexual education programming until June 2020.

The three expulsions bring to 21 the total for the 2013-14 school year. Twelve expulsions were reported at the same time last year.
