Student Misconduct Panel Discussion Scheduled

Keeping schools safe, while not relying heavily on juvenile courts to address problem behavior at school, has become a prominent issue generating national debate. We want to help our young people and ensure their successful futures, but when does misbehavior at school cross the line and become a police matter?
