Code of conduct allows principals to not suspend students for certain weapons –

Baltimore students who bring a switchblade, pepper spray or other weapon that is not a firearm to school this year will not be automatically suspended under a revised code of conduct distributed to parents in the first week of school. The revisions, which were not publicly vetted and not presented to the city school board, require principals to first take other measures, such as parent conferences, before imposing suspensions. In the past, those students would have been automatically suspended.
