Mountain View School Board has expelled a Mountain View Middle School student for the remainder of the school year.
The board voted on the expulsion, which was recommended by Superintendent Rowdy Ross, following an executive session at a special meeting last Thursday.
When an expulsion is being considered, the student and family are notified and may request a hearing with the board. The student was not present or represented at the meeting last week. The board made no public statement about the reason for its decision.
According to the expulsion policy in the school handbook: “The Board of Education may expel a student for a period longer than ten (10) school days for violation of the District’s written discipline policies. The Superintendent may make a recommendation of expulsion to the Board of Education for student conduct deemed to be of such gravity that suspension would be inappropriate, or where the student’s continued attendance at school would disrupt the orderly learning environment or would pose an unreasonable danger to the welfare of other students or staff.”
