JANESVILLE—A student has been expelled from the Janesville School District.

At an Oct. 16 hearing, a high school student was expelled for being a danger to the property, health and safety of others.

In particular, the student was expelled for battery to another student.

The student is expelled until age 21 but is eligible for early reinstatement in the 2018-19 school year if he or she gets a mental health evaluation, enrolls in alternate school program and makes satisfactory progress, complies with a juvenile justice care plan, and a variety of other conditions.

This is the first student expelled this year. At this time last year, one student had been expelled.
