Following the Jan. 22 Lonoke School Board meeting, a student disciplinary hearing was held. Mike Brown, Allen Evans, Charles Hunter, Anne Swint, Angela Sumner, Ross Moore, and Darrell Park were present.

Following their return from executive session, the board unanimously approved to to accept Superintendent’s recommendation to expel a male high school student for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year, for violating rule No. 25 – criminal mischief/vandalism, rule No. 26 – theft, rule No. 37 – theft of student/staff property, rule No. 38 – theft of school property, and rule No. 40 – criminal mischief/vandalism.

The expulsion is related to a previous break-in at the school.

The meeting was then adjourned.
