Student recommended for expulsion after bringing gun to Clarksville school

Rossview High School

CLARKSIVLLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Students at a Montgomery County high school got a bit of a scare recently after a twelfth grader allegedly brought a handgun to school.

Clarksville Montgomery County School System officials said the Rossview High School student has been recommended for expulsion after students reportedly saw a gun fall from the student’s pocket on Friday, Jan. 30th.

According to the school district spokeswoman, Elise Shelton, students reported the sighting during after-school hours. No one was harmed.

Shelton said the student has been recommended for zero tolerance under state law, which calls for expulsion.

The student has not been at the school since the incident. It’s also unclear if the student is facing any charges at this time.

The case is currently under review by the school district. A final decision on whether or not the senior will be expelled is expected to be made sometime next week.

Shelton told News 2 under due process, each student’s parent or legal guardian has the right to appeal a disciplinary recommendation.
