Sissonville Teen Back in School

A Sissonville High School student, suspended for 10 days because he wouldn't participate in the school's Narc program, was back in class after his lawsuit was settled out of court.
The lawsuit stated a teacher gave candy to the student for good academic performance, then pretended to put a piece of the candy up his nose.
The student told Calvin McKinney, the school’s principal, he didn't have or claim to have any drugs.
The student claims if he didn't participate in the "Narc Program", which gets students to identify drug users, he would be suspended.
McKinney claims he only asked the student to let him know if he saw any drugs in the school.
Kanawha County school policy states a student shall not possess or distribute any substance that represents a controlled substance.
The student will serve a 3 day suspension along a day and a half of community service as part of the settlement.
