MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A student who was critically injured in a mass stabbing at a Pittsburgh-area high school has been upgraded to fair condition.

Meanwhile, officials at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville are seeking a waiver of a state law requiring students attend 180 days of school annually.

The high school’s students missed four days of attendance — April 9, the day of the attacks counted because the school day was interrupted — and, combined with five snow days earlier in the year will fall short of the 180-day mark.

The state Department of Education must approve the attendance waiver.

The improving student, identified by family and friends as 17-year-old Jared Boger, remained at UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Pittsburgh on Friday. Two of three other students still at another hospital remain in critical condition.
