Following which, the board unanimously voted that an unidentified student referred to as Student A-07 had been found to have violated school rules under aggressive behavior and that said student would be expelled from school and all school activities for the remainder of the current 2006-2007 school year. However, starting January 3rd the student may enroll in the New Approach Alternative School in Vandalia. If passing grades and good standings are kept, the student could remain there until graduation. If not, the expulsion would immediately go back into affect.
In another closed session following their regular meeting the board approved the hiring of part time aides and special route drivers. Greg Groves was hired as the 7th Grade Boys Basketball Coach and Carol Knight was hired as a High School Tutor.
