The appellant seeks to reverse a decision made by the Glenwood Community School District suspending his son from extracurricular activities for six months.
The student was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. This was a second offense involving alcohol, so he was suspended from extracurricular events for six months, per school policy.
The appellant contends that the district policy requires a finding of guilty in a court of law, or an admission of guilt during a hearing; since neither occurred, his son should not be punished.
There is sufficient evidence in the record for a reasonable person to conclude that the student did admit to drinking. Also, the record as a whole shows the district officials found him guilty of the alleged offense under the district's eligibility policy.
The local board's decision is affirmed
