NR school board expels two students
At its Jan. 13 special meeting, the New Richmond School District Board of Education conducted two expulsion hearings, both of which resulted in a student being expelled, according to Superintendent Jeff Moberg.
“Two students were expelled on the grounds of endangering the health and welfare of others,” Moberg said. “Generally, endangerment can be anything from possession of drugs to bringing a weapon to school.”
According to Moberg, the two expulsions account for the fifth and sixth of the year for the New Richmond School District.
The six expulsions the school board has handed out this year is close to the total number of expulsions the school district had last year, Moberg said. However, Moberg stated that six expulsions is still within the range of a typical number for a school year based on what the school district sees on a yearly basis.
“The number we have seen so far this year is a little higher than normal, but it isn’t too far out of the range we normally see,” Moberg said.
