The student is expelled through the end of the 2010-11 school year, but can apply to be reinstated as early as the start of school in September.
To be reinstated early, he or she must follow the recommendations from an alcohol/drug assessment, following rules of his or her probation and enroll in counseling. He or she also must apply to the Truancy Abatement and Transitional Education Center or the TAGOS Leadership Academy if there are openings.
If reinstated early, the student also must submit to random, unannounced drug tests and locker searches; maintain satisfactory attendance, behavior and schoolwork; and remain in the school building during lunch periods.
This brings to 30 the number of expulsions for the 2009-10 school year, compared with 35 at this time last year.
