JANESVILLE —The Janesville School Board expelled a middle school student Tuesday for delivering prescription drugs on school grounds.

The student is accused of endangering the property, health and safety of others.

The student is expelled until the age of 21 but can apply for early reinstatement for the fall 2014-15 semester if he or she meets conditions required by the district.

To qualify for early reinstatement, the student must:

-- Obtain a full mental health and substance abuse evaluation.

-- Continue education through the Janesville School District or other provider.

-- Submit to searches at the request of district personnel.

-- Waive confidentiality of juvenile probation so information can be shared with the district.

-- Comply with requirements of juvenile justice case plan.

-- Obey all laws.

-- Take prescribed medication.

-- Regularly attend classes with absences and tardies monitored.

-- Maintain satisfactory behavior and levels of assignment completion, class participation and grades.

This brings to 12 the number of students expelled this school year, compared with three at this time last year.
