The superintendent has the final say in most cases. Another policy approved yesterday allows principals to put a student in an alternative school if they've been charged with a violent crime and are considered dangerous. A third which was tabled until May 3. says school officials should either suspend or expel a student who assaults another student. The policies sparked long debates over whether students defending themselves should be pun- ished the same as another and whether students should be allowed to carry Mace or pepper spray on key chains.

Page Broadneck expansion forces school switch By DENNIS SULLIVAN Staff Writer The school board will move Broadneck High School students to Severn River Junior High for a year while their school is partially renovated and forcing junior high and middle school students onto split sessions. Under a plan adopted yesterday by the Board of eighth- and ninth- graders at Severn River Junior would be sent to the adjacent Magothy River Middle where they would attend classes in the morning. Sixth- and seventh- graders would go to Magothy River in the afternoon. The plan was picked from a menu of options presented to the Board of Education by school administrators. Board members struggled for more than an hour over whether to put high schoolers in another school and disrupt other students or keep them in their own school even if it meant worrying about their safety during construction. was probably the best of all the said Mary interim education chair of the Broadneck Federation of Community Associa- tions.

Newman physicians affiliated with one-day sur- gery centers are finding it difficult to stomach efforts by some lawmakers to increase regulation. At the urging of the Maryland Hospi- tal Association and a governor's task force that studied the centers last the Senate and House are each moving forward on separate bills that would require the centers to be licensed through the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Those bills which passed recent votes with'only six dissenting votes of more than 180 among lawmakers had general support among medicine and the surgery centers. Advocates expect a bill to pass by Monday when the legislature adjourns.
