JANESVILLE—Two Janesville high school students have been expelled, one for being under the influence of alcohol at school and the other for engaging in physical contact with another student.

The student expelled for fighting is banned through his or her 21st birthday. The decision bars the student from returning to school permanently.

The district does not reveal names of schools or genders of expelled students, so no other details were given.

The student expelled for being under the influence at school is suspended for the entire 2014-15 school year, including the 2015 summer school.

He or she can apply for early reinstatement during the fall semester of the 2014-15 school year if conditions are met, including: continuing to earn credits toward graduation, taking prescribed medications, obtaining a mental health evaluation, providing confirmation that he or she has received insight into their behavior, compliance with juvenile justice plans, maintaining satisfactory class participation and assignment grades, and regularly attending class with absences and tardies monitored.

The two expulsions bring to 23 the total for the 2013-14 school year. The district reported 22 expulsions at this time last year.
