The appellants seek reversal of a decision made by the Montezuma Community School District board to expel their son, Scott. He was expelled for directing profanity to a teacher and breaking the good conduct rule by smoking cigarettes on the premises.
At the board meeting, the expulsion was not on the agenda, and the board members were not aware ahead of time that it would be discussed. There are clear indications that the board policy was not followed.
The local board's decision is overruled.
