2 Butler High students suspended by Richmond County tribunal for smoking marijuana in school bathroom

 

Two George P. Butler High School students were suspended after they smoked marijuana in the restroom Feb. 1, according to a recently released Richmond County tribunal finding.

The tribunal, held Feb. 13, suspended both students for the rest of the school year and gave them the option to attend the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program in lieu of long-term suspension.

The following tribunal findings are also from Feb. 13, and students were given the option to attend Tubman in lieu of long-term suspension unless otherwise noted:

• A T.W. Josey High School student cursed at and threatened the school safety and security officer and was found with a knife Jan. 31. He was suspended through the first semester of the 2012-13 school year.

• An A.R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School student was found to have met the requirements of Rule 32 of the Student Code of Conduct and Discipline after she was found guilty of burglary. She was allowed to return to her zoned school. Rule 32 applies to students who are charged with a serious criminal offense and whose immediate return to school could disrupt the educational process.

• A Langford Middle School pupil called the teacher a profane name and pushed past the teacher Feb. 2. She was suspended the first semester of 2012-13.
