The hearing is over.
Fraser agreed to the deal with NACS I reported earlier. Don't expect to hear from him anytime soon; the gag order is already in effect.
MORE: The "official" part of the meeting lasted less than a minute. After it was opened, the resolution concerning the previously negotiated settlement was passed unanimously, and then the meeting was
quickly adjourned. Local media outlets didn't even have a chance to set up their cameras
before it was over.
As part of the deal, several Carroll instructors would tutor him individually at the Dupont Branch of the Allen County Library after school lets out. But a source close to the Frasers says Jeff is likely
to enroll at another local high school instead.
UPDATE: Tracy Warner provides more details, including the following statement from NACS superintendent Steve Yager:
The matter concerning the expulsion of Jeffrey R. Fraser from Carroll High School has been resolved by the affected parties on the following terms:
1. The expulsion of Jeffrey Fraser (the "Student") shall be rescinded immediately.
2. The Student is not to attend curricular, co-curricular, or extra-curricular activities, or school-sponsored events on the Carroll High School campus during the remainder of the 2005-2006 school year, and School will provide all home-schooling necessary for the Student to graduate in June 2006.
3. No further legal action, criminal or civil, will be pursued or initiated by the parties, and the Parties shall take all reasonable action to ensure any criminal charges shall be dismissed.
4. The Student shall not attend the Carroll High School 2006 graduation ceremonies. The Student also wishes the following be stated:
I apologize to the faculty, staff, and students of Carroll High School and administration of Northwest Allen County Schools, especially to Principal Deborah Neumeyer, Mr. DiPrimio, Mr. Ginder, and Mr. Drake, for the things I said in the publication. Further, I want to apologize to former principal Dr. Tim Ogle, for all references to him in the publication were false, fabricated, and without merit.
