— The Janesville School Board expelled three high school students during a closed meeting Tuesday. The students were accused of:

- Bringing a knife to school. The student was expelled through the end of the 2010-11 school year but could earn reinstatement as early as summer school 2010 by continuing in his or her residential program, getting counseling and an alcohol/drug assessment, keeping up with schoolwork during the expulsion and enrolling in the transitional education program or the TAGOS Leadership Academy if room is available.


If reinstated early, this student must submit to random drug tests, complete the Prime for Life anti-alcohol program, be restricted to the school building during lunchtimes and maintain satisfactory attendance, behavior and schoolwork.


- Possessing marijuana with intent to deliver on school grounds. This student was expelled through the end of summer school 2010 but could earn early reinstatement starting with second semester in January 2010.


To be considered for reinstatement, the student must get an alcohol/drug assessment, keep up with all schoolwork and complete the Truancy Abatement and Transitional Education program or TAGOS Leadership academy if room is available.


Upon early reinstatement, the student must be restricted to the building during lunchtimes and maintain satisfactory attendance, behavior and schoolwork.


- Possessing marijuana with intent to deliver on school grounds. This student was expelled through the end of the current school year but could earn early reinstatement starting with second semester in January 2010, subject to the same conditions as the student noted above and with a additional requirement to complete the Prime for Life program upon early reinstatement.


These are the first three students expelled this school year, compared with 12 at this time last year.
