— The Janesville School Board expelled three high school students at a meeting Tuesday. They were:

-- A student accused of possessing marijuana on school grounds. The student is expelled through the end of the 2008-09 school year but may apply for early reinstatement starting with 2008 summer school. To earn early reinstatement, he or she must continue with counseling, complete the Prime for Life anti-drug and alcohol course, submit to a drug screen that must be clean and complete the Truancy Abatement and Transitional Education program if an opening is available.


-- A student accused of fighting on school grounds. The student was expelled through the end of the 2008-09 school year with no early reinstatement.


-- A student accused of starting a fight with another student on school grounds. The student is expelled through the end of the 2008-09 school year but may apply for early reinstatement starting with 2008 summer school after going through anger-management treatment and completing the Truancy Abatement and Transitional Education program when an opening is available.


Reinstated students must have satisfactory attendance, schoolwork and behavior and sometimes must comply with certain restrictions.


That brings to 15 the number of students expelled this school year, compared with 14 at this time last year.
