1.  causing serious physical injury to another person, except in self defense;

2.  possessing any firearm, knife, explosive, or other dangerous object of no reasonable use to the pupil at school or at a school activity off school grounds;

3.  unlawful selling any controlled substances;

4.  robbery or extortion; or

5.  repeatedly committing inappropriate acts to the extent that the student has been suspended off-campus in excess of four times during that school year or a total of 20 days per year.
