Youths disciplined for sexual offenses

  • Follow Education

Two Grovetown High School students recently were disciplined for committing sexual offenses.

After a Nov. 29 meeting with the Columbia County school system hearing officer, a student was suspended and will enter in-school suspension after being allowed to return to school, according to discipline reports collected Monday.

The other student was sent to the system’s alternative school in Grovetown for the remainder of the school year after a Dec. 1 hearing.

Also, threats and intimidation got two students at the alternative school expelled for the remainder of the school year. One of those students must return to the alternative school for the first semester of next school year.

A student at Lakeside High and another at Lakeside Middle were caught with knives last month.

The high school student was remanded to the Individual Education Plan Committee, which oversees the curriculum and discipline of special-needs pupils.

The middle school pupil was expelled for the rest of the semester and must attend the alternative school next semester.

The Lakeside Middle pupil was sent to the alternative school, while the Lakeside High student was remanded to the school because of insufficient evidence.

Weapons violations got one Grovetown High student expelled this semester and another sent to the alternative school.

Five pupils were expelled last month and early this month for an “accumulation of offenses.”

Two of those youths expelled, after a Nov. 18 decision by the hearing officer, were pupils at Grovetown Middle. Both are out for the remainder of the semester.

Two Grovetown Middle pupils were sent to the alternative school for the rest of the school year and two were remanded to the IEP Committee.

Also expelled this semester for accumulation of offenses were two students already at the alternative school.

A pupil at Lakeside Middle School and a student at Grovetown High were sent to the alternative school for the rest of the school year for accumulation of offenses.

One Evans High student was expelled for the semester for truancy, and another was sent to the alternative school for the rest of the school year for the same charge.
