The appellant seeks reversal of a decision made by the Waterloo Community School District board about expelling him from school because of a fighting incident. He claimed a racial slur was spoken to him prior to throwing the first punch.
There is insufficient evidence in the file to corroborate the appellant's version of events, particularly the racial slurs. The weight of the evidence leans towards him being an unprovoked aggressor who violated school policy.
The local board's decision is upheld.
