Janesville School Board expels two students
-- A high school student accused of bringing a prescription medication to school without a prescription, bringing drug paraphernalia to school, resisting a police officer and battery to a police officer.
This student is expelled through the end of first semester of the 2012-13 school year but may apply for earlier reinstatement after complying with certain conditions.
Conditions include a drug assessment, complying with treatment recommendations, mental health counseling and providing urinalysis showing sobriety for 90 days before returning to school.
After returning to school, the student would have to submit to random searches and maintain satisfactory grades, behavior and attendance, among other conditions.
-- A middle school student accused of threatening another student.
This student is expelled through his or her 21st birthday but could apply for reinstatement starting with the fall 2012 semester after complying with conditions that include continuing with mental health counseling, taking prescribed medicine, complying with conditions of probation and not engaging in criminal activity.
If this student returns early, she/he must submit to conditions that include random searches and urinalysis, continuing with counseling and maintaining satisfactory grades, behavior and attendance.
This brings to seven the number of expulsions this school year, the same number at this time last year.
