JANESVILLE—The Janesville School Board expelled four high school students last week, including two who are expelled forever.

They are:

-- A student accused of stealing a cellphone and breaking into a vehicle on school grounds. This student was expelled until age 21 and is not eligible for reinstatement.

-- A student accused of receiving a stolen cellphone and breaking into a vehicle on school grounds.  This student was expelled until age 21 and is not eligible for reinstatement.

-- A student accused of bullying, expelled through the end of the 2014-15 school year.

Director of Student Services Yolanda Cargile declined to describe the bullying behavior.

The student could be reinstated no earlier than the spring semester 2014 if he complies with conditions that include mental health counseling, written confirmation that he has gained insight into behaviors and is ready to comply with school rules, compliance with a juvenile justice case plan and taking prescribed medicine.

If reinstated early, the student must participate in Brothers Reaching Out, a support group for black male students, and maintain satisfactory attendance, behavior and schoolwork.

-- A student accused of possessing prescription drugs not prescribed to the student, expelled until age 21.

This student could earn reinstatement no earlier than 2014 summer school if he or she gets mental health counseling, provides written confirmation of insight into behaviors and is ready to comply with school rules, complies with a juvenile justice case plan, takes prescribed medication and participates in an education program for expelled students.

If reinstated early, the student must comply with conditions that include continued counseling, submitting to searches and maintaining satisfactory attendance, behavior and schoolwork.

This brings to seven the number of students expelled this school year, compared with none at this time last year.
