Admin enforces stricter rules to stop in-school violence

Colin Schuessler, Staff Reporter

Due to increased school disruptions and violence a new rule has been implemented into GCAA. This rule is: Anyone participating in a fight will receive a 10 day out of school suspension and a recommendation for a hearing. At these hearings the request will be that the student does not return to school until August of 2022, and will be virtual until then.

In the past several weeks there have been many physical altercations between students, both high school and middle school. This led to the administrative team making the decision to implement stricter consequences for students.

“I wish we didn’t have to implement it and go in this direction, but they cause a disruption to the learning environment,” said Mrs.Epps, a principal.
