MCC to discuss expelling student who allegedly made bomb threat

December 16, 2018

SCOTTVILLE — School district officials at Mason County Central on Monday will consider suspending or expelling the student who was allegedly responsible for the bomb threat at the middle school on Friday, Nov. 30.

“The law requires us to take an egregious incident of this kind of weight to the board,” MCC Superintendent Jeff Mount said, stressing that the student in question will, at the very least, be suspended for an extended period of time.

“The worst thing we can have is a permanent expulsion, which is an expulsion from all public schools, but it also could be a long-term expulsion for anything up to that,” Mount said. “It’s for the board to decide.”

The board will discuss disciplinary action in closed session because the student’s legal guardian submitted a request for the hearing to take place privately.

The board meets at 7 p.m. Monday at the high school, 7 p.m. at the high school, 300 W. Broadway St., Scottville.
