Former Denfeld student excluded from district for remainder of school year

A former Denfeld High School student was excluded from the Duluth school district for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year by the Duluth School Board on Monday.

Exclusion is similar to expulsion, but involves a student who is not currently enrolled in school. The student in this case was excluded for bringing a weapon look-alike onto school grounds, the district reported.

Officials from the Duluth school district wouldn't release any other information about the student or more information about the incident, citing privacy laws.

Monday's School Board vote followed an Oct. 16 hearing on the proposed exclusion.
