Tribunal: Pupil showed inappropriate cell phone photo

A Hephzibah Middle School pupil showed an inappropriate picture of himself to a female pupil on Feb. 14, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding made public today.

This was the second time he had exposed himself to other pupils, the March 1 tribunal found, so he was suspended for the rest of this school year and for the 2011-12 school year. He was given the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program in lieu of long-term suspension.

In other findings:

  • A Pine Hill Middle School pupil was suspended after he got physical with and intimidated another pupil, used profanity toward the teacher and other pupils, and balled up a piece of paper and threw it at the teacher on Feb. 18. He was suspended for the rest of this school year and the first semester of 2011-12 with the option to attend the alternative program.
  • Two Sego Middle School special education pupils were suspended after they fought, and a teacher was hurt while trying to break them up, on Feb. 16. One pupil was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of this school year and all of 2011-12, and the other was suspended for the rest of this school year with the option to attend the alternative program. This decision is subject to the review of the special education team.
