The Consequences for Fighting

Josie Muckerman

Fighting is a problem in every school. But how does Warrenton High School handle fighting? 

The consequences for fighting are always based on the severity of the individual situation. Who was in the fight? Is this a recurring act? Were weapons involved? These are all things the Central Office has to look at. The Central Office can only suspend students for up to 10 days. If the issue has not been resolved after multiple suspensions, then a school board referral will be made. Only the school board can expel someone or they can suspend a student for up to 180 days (full school year). Even though expulsion is rare, it is still a possibility for fighting. 

If you witness a fight do not record it. Instead, report it to staff. There will be consequences for filming including a meeting with an administrator.
