Columbia County students caught with drugs

  • Follow Latest News

Three Columbia County high school students were sent to alternative school last week for drug possession.

Including these incidents, 11 students since Sept. 20 were caught with drugs at county public high schools.

The students were sent to the county alternative school in Grovetown following sessions before the school system hearing officer on Oct. 6.

Two of the students attended Greenbrier High and another was at Evans High.

A Lakeside High student supposedly was caught with marijuana, but the hearing officer remanded the student’s case back to the school last week due to “insufficient evidence.”

Also last week, a pupil at Stallings Island Middle School was sent to the alternative school for disorderly conduct.

THANKS for including

THANKS for including information about CCSS tribunals in your newspaper.

And KUDOS to Charlie, Buddy, the CCSS police force, Steve and the CCSO for cracking down on a serious problem to which at least one previous CCSS administration had turned a blind eye.

Craig, are they in the habit

Craig, are they in the habit of not reporting problems in CC? If so, shame on them and we ought to hold their feet to the fire over it. No coverups, period.

Good job to the CCBOE Campus

Good job to the CCBOE Campus Police Officers, Director Hendry and the fine officers. Often their hands are slightly tied due to negative publicity but the officers do a good job. Some principals continue to "burry their heads in the sand" and prefer their officers ignore problems - officers do not need to answer to principals in situations such as this or in ANY law enforcement matter as they should only answer to Director Hendry who in turn answers to the Superintendent. Charlie was a great supporter as a principal and I belive he still supports finding the problems within the system and dealing with it.

Excellent post Craig - and Thanks Augusta Chronicle.

It doesn't bother me that the Augusta Chronicle doesn't cover much about Columbia County. It is the Augusta Chronicle in Richmond County, not the Evans Chronicle in Columbia County. Okay, what was that explosive sound near Bobby Jones Expressway just now?
