   The Hazelwood School District will pay tuition for an expelled middle school student to receive an education through a contract with an alternative learning center.  That after a settlement was reached between the district and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 13 year old had been expelled last year for selling pills to another student.  The paper reports the student couldn't afford private school, or even a computer.  He also couldn't access alternative education programs through the juvenile courts, because he hadn't been charged with a crime.  So he sued claiming his right to a free, public education was being infringed.

   Legal Services executive director Dan Glazier tells the paper the case is one of the first of its kind filed in Missouri. Glazier says the problem is fairly rare, since so few students are actually expelled in the state, fewer than 60 all of last year. 

   The Hazelwood settlement stops short of obligating school district to always serve students who are expelled.  But as part of the settlement, Hazelwood has agreed to consider similar arrangements on a case-by-case basis.

Food for Thought will help hungry students

HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis area school district has launched a food pantry program to help ensure needy students don't go without nourishment outside the school day.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Hazelwood School District's "Food For Thought" program is the second in the area. The Jennings district opened one for its students in the fall of 2012.
Hazelwood's pantries will be housed at the district's three high schools. But they'll be available to all students who lack a reliable source of food for evenings, weekends and other breaks from school.
 About 57 percent of Hazelwood students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches, compared to nearly 50 percent statewide.
