The student was arrested, and a third-degree assault charge was filed by the school system's division of law enforcement, officials said.
McKenzie said he couldn't give details of the case. But he noted that the school system's code of conduct provides a range of punishments, up to and including long-term suspension, a recommendation for expulsion, or possible placement in an alternative school.
