As for Sterling’s status at Consol, CSISD spokesman Chuck Glenewinkel says “All students are disciplined according to the student code of conduct and the state educational code. Additionally, CSISD considers three prongs when disciplining students…1.) Was the action done in self-defense? 2.) What was the intent or lack of intent at the time the student engaged in the conduct? 3.) Consideration of the student’s disciplinary history. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act prohibits us from commenting on specific disciplinary issues.”BartHumphreys032514.mp3
