Two Glenn Hills High School students who were fighting were suspended after a teacher was hurt during the incident, according to Richmond County tribunal findings made public today.
The March 10 fight was broken up, but when one student tried to go after the other again, the teacher was punched and slapped. The aggressive student was suspended for the rest of the school year with the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program in lieu of long-term suspension. The other student was given time served, plus 10 days of in-school suspension, and was placed on strict probation for the rest of the school year, according to the March 22 tribunal finding.
In another hearing, a Sego Middle School pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year after he closed the classroom door, causing the teacher's fingers to be caught between the door and doorjamb, on March 9. The teacher was not seriously injured. The pupil was given the option to attend the alternative program.
