The school board meeting to determine the fate of first grader Zachary Christie (Help Zachary) hadÂ a great outcome last night and young Zachary is now back to school! The school board voted to change the punishments for weapons/violence infractionsÂ in cases ofÂ kintergardeners and first-graders to 3-5 day suspensions and no reform school. More changes to the code of conduct and punishments areÂ may follow as well.
Zachary's mom sent a text message this morning to Today Show producers letting them know he was getting on the bus!
As you may recall from my post yesterday, ZacharyÂ ChristieÂ was suspended from his Newark, Delaware schoolÂ for 5 days for bringing a campaign utensil toÂ useÂ for his lunch which included, in addition to the fork and spoon, a knife. He was then dealt another blow under the school's zero tolerance weapons policy and told he had to attend 45 days ofÂ reform school before being allowed to return to class. Last night, the 45 day reform school decision was overturned.
