School board expels five students

Five seventh grade students were expelled from the Orofino school at the deliberation of the School District #171 board members at a meeting last week in Peck.

Board member John Schwartz noted that the students may seek an outpatient treatment program by a certified drug and alcohol counselor if they complete this program the board may consider allowing them back into school at an earlier date but no sooner than the beginning of the 2011-12 school year.

All except one of the students, their parents and a Riverside Recovery representative met with the board previous to the decision being made to expel the students.

District Supt. Dale Durkee announced the district’s administrative team prioritized the need to move the seventh graders from Orofino Elementary School to Orofino High School this fall.
