The Virginia Beach seventh graders who were suspended for playing with an airsoft toy gun on their own private property have now been expelled for an entire school year.
The decision was made unanimously by a disciplinary committee consisting of three members of the Virginia Beach City Public Schools board, according to local news.
Khalid Caraballo and Aidan Clark are banned from Larkspur Middle School until at least January, when a new hearing will be convened to determine whether the boys can come back to school early.
Local news reported that three members of the disciplinary committee were Dottie Holtz, Bobby Melatti and Carolyn Weems. The Daily Caller reached out to all three, but none offered to comment.
School district spokesperson Lauren Wicks said she could not officially identify the three committee members who made the decision. As such, the district declined to answer specific questions, instead releasing a statement to The Daily Caller.
