School board punishes Northside student involved in fight with teacher

WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Logan Hancock, the Northside High School student involved in a fight with his teacher, will finish the rest of the school year in an alternative school, that is according to student’s mother.

This decision comes after the Houston County School Board held a tribunal hearing Wednesday. 

Nancy Hancock, Logan’s mother, tells 41NBC the school board called Thursday to inform her of Logan’s punishment.

Hancock says her son will have to go to alternative school for two semesters. The punishment starts in January 2015.  She adds Logan is allowed to attend Northside High School again after attending two semesters in alternative school.

Hancock is upset about the decision. She says she reached out to an attorney for legal advice. She tells 41NBC Logan isn’t happy about the decision either, but he wants to get his degree on time so he plans to start alternative school next semester.

Houston County School Board spokesperson Beth McLaughlin says she is not allowed to discuss details of the tribunal or discipline records. She adds David Kelly, the teacher involved in the fight, will have a hearing in front of the school board in January.
