Bibb students expelled following Fla. trip, system says

Two Rutland High School teachers are suspended and more than one Rutland student expelled after students were caught drinking at a field trip to Florida earlier this month.

“The (teachers) are on administrative leave as we work through the personnel side of the investigation,” acting Superintendent Sylvia McGee said late Friday. “Our attorney is working with their attorney and that is why I am reluctant to speak because I do not want to interfere with that process.”

The students were on a DECA field trip.

Students who were charged with drinking were expelled, McGee said. As of late Friday, she did not have the exact number of students who were expelled.
