2 Davidson students suspended for buying, selling pills

A Davidson Fine Arts Mag­net School student was caught selling muscle relaxers to another student, according to a Richmond County tribunal finding recently made public.

The student who bought the three muscle relaxers March 6 was suspended for the rest of the school year. The seller was suspended for the rest of the school year and the first semester of next year. Both were offered the option to attend the Tubman Education
Center Alternative Program in lieu of long-term suspension.

The following findings also are from March 26 tribunal hearings. Students were given the option to attend the alternative program in lieu of long-term suspension unless otherwise noted:

• Three Tutt Middle School pupils were suspended over an incident that started when one pupil tossed a balled-up piece of paper to another in the gym March 13. The catcher opened it and saw it held marijuana. He gave it to another pupil, who already had a marijuana cigarette in his possession. The thrower was suspended for 10 days and was placed on probation for the rest of the year. The catcher and the student with the marijuana cigarette were suspended for the rest of the school year.

• A Glenn Hills High School special-education student was found in a class to which he was not assigned March 13, which violated his behavior contract regarding cutting class and leaving campus without permission. He was suspended for the rest of the school year and for the first semester of next year.

• A Tubman Education Center special-education pupil was found in possession of marijuana March 12. The pupil was suspended for the rest of the school year and for the first semester of the next one. The decision is subject to review by the special-education team.

• A Westside High School student used profanity toward teachers and refused to follow their directives March 13. He was suspended for the rest of the school year.

• Two Westside High students were found with marijuana March 12. One was suspended for the rest of the school year and the other, a senior, was suspended for the rest of the school year or the rest of his high school career if he does not graduate by the end of the year. The panel showed leniency because of the student’s good grades and senior status.

• A Cross Creek High School student slapped and squeezed a teacher’s arm March 9. She was suspended for the rest of the year and for the first semester of next year.
