JANESVILLE — Two high school students have been expelled from Janesville schools for having dangerous weapons on school grounds.

One high school student was expelled for battering another student and bringing a dangerous weapon to school.

That student is expelled with no opportunity for reinstatement.

The other student, a middle school student, was expelled for possessing a folding knife. That student is expelled for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year and the entire 2016-17 school year, including 2017 summer school.

The middle school student may apply for reinstatement no earlier than the second semester of 2015-16 school year provided the student meets conditions set by the district.

Conditions for early reinstatement include taking prescribed medications, obtaining a mental health screening, compliance with juvenile justice plans, obeying all laws, enrolling and making progress in a expelled student education program, maintaining satisfactory class participation and assignment grades, maintaining satisfactory behavior and regularly attending class with absences and tardies monitored, submitted to searches of person and property and submitting to restrictions imposed in regards to use of electronic devices.

The district does not reveal names of schools or genders of expelled students, so no other details were given.

The two expulsions bring the total for the 2015-16 school year to two. The district reported no expulsions at this time last year.
