'Touching' leads to expulsion
A Janesville high school student has been expelled after being accused of "inappropriately touching students."
Director of Student Services Yolanda Cargile said the offenses happened over a number of days, both on and off school grounds.
Cargile would not say how many students were touched, and she would not describe the touching beyond the word "inappropriate."
Cargile said she was withholding the information, on the advice of legal counsel, to make sure the students involved cannot be identified and to respect their privacy.
The accused student is expelled through his or her 21st birthday but could apply to return to school as early as September.
To be reinstated, the student must fulfill certain conditions, including complying with the student's juvenile justice case plan. That plan includes substance abuse and/or mental health treatment.
The student also must take any prescribed medications, refrain from criminal behavior and attend an alternative school. The district offers alternative-school options for expelled students.
