Two George P. Butler High School students were suspended after they “engaged in an immoral act” in the boys’ locker room, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding made public Wednesday.

The act, which was not described in the tribunal finding, took place Oct. 18. The students, whose genders were not revealed, were suspended for the rest of the semester with the option to attend the Tubman Education Center alternative program in lieu of long-term suspension, according to the Oct. 31 tribunal finding.

In an unrelated matter, another Butler student was suspended for the rest of the school year after he was found Oct. 18 with a grinder commonly used for marijuana and that contained marijuana residue. He also was given the option to attend the alternative program.

And an Academy of Richmond County special education student was suspended for the rest of the school year when, as of Oct. 20, he had cut class excessively. He was given the option to attend the alternative program, and the decision is subject to review by the special education team.

RCSS students who don't fit

RCSS students who don't fit the traditional instructional mold have an impressive facility in the Tubman Education Center to seek more appropriate alternative pathways to a HS diploma and the education which that diploma should attest.

ARC SpEd kid -- "decision is subject to review". All bets are off concerning any punishment. However, it's nice to see that the system is disciplining students for absences.

Well, if it happened in the boys locker room and officials are refusing to release the genders, then we can assume that it was two boys.

An "immoral act"? That's not

An "immoral act"? That's not very specific. I'm curious to know what moral framework the RCBE is working from.

If our local administrators

If our local administrators were smart they would use the numbers for students sent to alternative school as a 5 year forecasting tool to project future budgets for new jail cell construction. I suspect there is a strong correlation. The "punishments" handed out by our liberal school systems certainly do not deter these young criminals from their ultimate destiny. Keeping them in the system where they eventually will be handed a diploma after enough time served does not solve the problem and hurts the rest of the semi-normal students. A lot or resources are wasted on future inmates to the detriment of kids who might actually have a chance. The alternative school crowd will have plenty of time to get their GED while they are locked up.

Ral, I assume by "immoral act" it was something like not paying a living wage or sending kids off to die to normalize oil field leasing in a foreign dictatorship ...

KNECKBONE, BEAT ME TO THE

KNECKBONE, BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH! As soon as I saw the article I thought of Penn State. But think about it. Two males; two females or a male and a female. If you "engage in an immoral act" who cares what the sign on the door says when you get the 'nature.'

maybe they can't specify because if the immoral act was a homosexual act then the paper will be "occupied" by the local gay/lesbian advocacy group demanding the writer be fired, apologize or go into rehab...maybe the immoral act was with an animal...no wait can't say that either then PETA will demand the same thing....oh well i guess we will never know
