All three are expelled. If they are "good" they have the chance to come back to Annawan at the start of the 4th quarter. Considering that Dedecker's daddy is the vice president of the school board it's a pretty fair chance they will all be back in the 4th quarter in order to graduate with their buddies.

How can they graduate after missing the 3rd quarter? Grades would be incomplete or zeroes for the 3rd quarter. If you are expelled you can't come onto school property.

And most likely "Dedecker's Daddy" will abstain from any voting. If not. Go raise hell.

He will abstain if he's there for the vote. However, when you abstain your vote counts with the majority. So, if the vote is 6-0 to expel, the vote is actually 7-0.

They will go to an alternitive school. Their grades there can be transferred back to Annawan when the time comes. And wether or not Not his "Daddy" abstains or not he'll still have some pull. I see these kids back by 4th quarter. As long as they don't screw up where ever it is they'll be. But knowing these kids they'll probably screw up.

What I don't understand is how can you just expell a student for a quarter. When you expell a student I thought it was indefinitely???

So you admit that you don't understand, and that what you thought to be fact was incorrect? Do you think the school board reacted and handed down a penalty without consulting with their attorney?
You may not agree with the decision, but your opinion wasn't considered when the penalty was handed down.
Unbelievable

I am with you on this! In one breath they say they voted unanimously to expel the three students for the remaining 2009-2010 school year and send them to an alternative school and in the next breath they rule that if they meet the requirements of the alternative school, they will be allowed to return to Annawan High School at the beginning of the 4th quarter, which just so happens to be in a few weeks. Just ask a few of the other students that Annawan sent to the alternative schools in the past if THEY were given that same choice (to return to Annawan within a few weeks if they were good). Bets are - they were not given the same choice and they didn't even do anything to this extreme. How sad is it that 6 grown adults cannot even stand up for what is ethically right and moral and stand behind one comment instead of talking out both sides of their mouths to try to please everyone!

It's kind of like the rule in the School Handbook that states that an Out of School suspension warrants not being allowed on school property and receiving zeros for all work including major tests but yet they were allowed to take their finals anyway during their suspension. Some can get away with it, some can't. Another fine example of the way Annawan works. Think twice while at the voting poll next round.

Oh let me guess the attorney they talked to was who??? Vandersnick??? LOL How can these boys be EXPELLED but yet be sent to the alternative school and have a chance to come back for the 4th quater? When I was in school if you got expelled you was sent home and that was that. If I was the victims family I would also consult a lawyer and throw the biggest fit anyone has ever seen before them boys were allowed to come back to that school or go to the alternative school. They should be EXPELLED and expected to come back next year and start over like anyone else in the state of Illinois would have to do. And Get a Grasp, you sound like you must be someone in the court system in our wonderful county, and I am not sure I would take much that you have to say about anything without making sure that I had some proof to back it up on my end, just because you sound like a real prick. It also sounds like the opinion of the victim and victims family was not considered either or the school board would not have done this in my opinion.

what do you want done??? just give the boys the electric chair and be done with it? would that suffice? it sounds to me by the way you keep going on about all of this is that it would....the griping, whining, finger pointing, and judging that goes on about every aspect of this, the victims as well as the boys who committed the act, just disgusts me...no one will be satisfied with any decision that is made right or wrong...yes the actions that the boys committed was wrong...they should get maximum punishment for their actions....but REMEMBER, they ALL ARE STILL CHILDREN!!!!!!!!

I am sorry to tell you but in the state of Illinois you are an adult at the age of 17 and in some cases you are considered an adult at the age of 16. And these individuals should have thought about that before they did something so stupid. And no I do not think they should get the electric chair, I just think they should get the punishment that anyone else that is an adult would get, and that is not what they are being charged with right now. I have seen guys that have sexual assult charges just because they said sexual things to a girl, these guys put their private parts on this boys face. So you tell me how this is right or fair.

Unless it has changed in the past couple years,n Illinois ifyou are expelled you can not go to any Illinois public school and private schools do not have to allow them in.

I think they should be kicked out for the year and they should have sexual assult charges on them couse u no if they did that shit to a girl thats what they would be charged with and to the people that dont think they should well i bet if it was your kid they did that shit to then it be a differnt story u would want them to get what they have comeing to them
