The county school board has voted to form a committee to study alternatives to suspension and expulsion of students.

During yesterday's regular meeting, board members received a report on discipline in schools that showed that during the 1991-1992 academic year, 53,765 referrals were written on students for a range of offenses including fighting, insubordination, use of foul language, and truancy.

More than 5,300 students also were suspended during the same period and 282 were expelled.
