Legal Question of the Week
Dear Legal Mailbag: Do we have to count time served in juvenile detention as part of an expulsion decision? For example, a student was found in possession of a controlled substance on school property in January and was arrested on a number of charges. He was suspended for 10 days, but before we could expel him, the student was placed in juvenile detention. He was released in July. We held the expulsion hearing on the first day of this school year, and we expelled him for 180 days. Does his time served in corrections count toward that 180 days set forth in the expulsion decision?
