The Washoe County School District has reversed a Reno high school student’s suspension after the ACLU of Nevada threatened legal action.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the district announced its decision last night to remove the punishment from Noah Christiansen’s record.
The 17-year-old McQueen High School junior called Congressman Mark Amodei’s office while participating in the March 14 school walk-out demonstrations marking a month since a mass shooting in a Parkland, Florida high school.
Christiansen was given a two-day suspension after an Amodei staffer called his school, complaining that he used “offensive, disrespectful and vulgar” language.
As a result of the suspension, Christiansen could not serve in his recently-elected position as class secretary.
