Apponequet bolsters discipline following students’ complaints
High school resumes in-house suspensions
Apponequet Regional High School is cracking down on rule breakers among its 840 pupils following complaints from the student council about smoking in the bathrooms, lax student discipline, and ineffective control tactics from the administration. Superintendent John McCarthy, head of the Freetown-Lakeville school district, said several measures to monitor discipline and punish offenders have been put into place. And people can expect this heightened focus on student discipline to stick, he said.
