A Spirit Creek Middle School pupil tried to stab another pupil with a knife, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding recently made public.
On Feb. 2, the pupil called the other pupil a profane name and tried to stab him. The first pupil was expelled through the end of the first semester of the 2012-13 school year, then assigned to the Tubman Education Center alternative program for the second semester of 2012-13, the Feb. 16 tribunal finding ruled.
The following findings also are from Feb. 16 tribunal hearings. Students were given the option to attend the alternative program in lieu of long-term suspension unless otherwise noted:
• The requirements of Rule 32 of the Student Code of Conduct and Discipline were met for a Glenn Hills High School special-education student who was adjudicated on a felony burglary charge. The rule applies to students who are charged with a serious criminal offense and whose immediate return to school could disrupt the educational process. The student was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year. The special-education team will convene to determine the student’s placement for the 2012-13 school year.
• A Cross Creek High School student got into a fight with another student Feb. 3, while she was on probation for a previous fight. She was suspended for the rest of the school year.
• A Langford Middle School pupil attacked another pupil who he thought was talking about his mother on Feb. 6. The first pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year.
• A Murphey Middle School pupil waited to jump on another pupil during bus dismissal Feb. 6. Even though school officials were protecting the second pupil, the first pupil stared at the second while punching his hand with his fist. The assistant principal had to restrain the first pupil after telling him to leave, and the pupil punched and kicked the assistant principal while still threatening the second pupil. The first pupil and his parent were told he could not come to school the next day, but he was found hiding in the building. He was expelled through the end of the 2012-13 school year. He was shown leniency because of his age and grade.
• A Morgan Road Middle School pupil used profanity toward a teacher and brushed by her abruptly Feb. 3. He was suspended for the rest of the school year.
• A Tutt Middle School pupil exposed himself in class Jan. 31. He was suspended for the rest of the school year.
• A Glenn Hills Middle School pupil attacked another pupil in class Feb. 3. The second pupil was required to seek medical attention for a concussion, a bruised rib and a sprained neck. The first pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year.
