The Dothan City School System is hoping to amp up its discipline policies. Superintendent Tim Wilder introduced a plan to increase the alternative school's staff from four to 12 teachers.
The plan would mean more students could be sent to the school instead of being expelled. "It will be revenue neutral except possibly the mental health counseling. Some units are earned at other schools and that was the idea, to try not to take away from them," said Wilder.
Wilder has also proposed new policies on how students are sent to alternative school and how long they will stay there.
