ELK MOUND — The Elk Mound Board of Education has expelled a high school student for possessing, using and distributing prescription narcotics at school.

The Board of Education held an expulsion hearing on the matter October 13.

The Elk Mound school board voted to expel the student until he is 21, said Dr. Ron Walsh, superintendent, the day after the expulsion hearing.

The student is not allowed on school grounds without prior permission until the age of 21, Dr. Walsh said.

The Board of Education approved several other stipulations, but Dr. Walsh said he was not at liberty to discuss the stipulations because the specifics could help identify the student.

The expulsion hearing took several hours, he said.

Tim Sivertson serves as president of the Elk Mound Board of Education.

Kyle Jenson serves as vice president.

Gary Bodenburg serves as treasurer.

Margaret Dieter serves as clerk.

Directors on the school board include Loren Hanson, Mark Cedarblade, and Patrick Rhude.
