Springfield Schools Sued Over Weapons Policy
The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported Saturday (http://tinyurl.com/l29fjgz ) that the student's father claims in the lawsuit that the district unfairly failed to account for his son's academic, extracurricular or disciplinary records. He says his son had a 5.0089 grade-point average on a 5.0 scale, was a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist and belonged to the varsity golf and tennis teams.
Court records say police with a K-9 dog searched the car on Sept. 27 after receiving a tip that the student had marijuana. The search allegedly turned up a collector's "Buffalo Bill" hunting knife inside a backpack, drug paraphernalia with traces of suspected marijuana and golf clubs.
