The district had argued that Colman needed to be transferred to Terman, where no other students are known to have cystic fibrosis, to avoid the risk of cross-infection with kids at Jordan who have cystic fibrosis.
The Chadams said Colman has never been clinically diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and that his genetic condition poses no threat of cross-infection to students with the disease.
The family and the school district reached agreement last week, and Colman, who had declined to enroll at Terman, was back at Jordan Monday.
"After careful consideration, which included further consultation with a medical expert, the students are attending the same school and the PAUSD is following the recommendation of implementing cystic-fibrosis cross-infection protocols," Associate Superintendent Charles Young said.
Neither the Chadams nor their lawyer, Stephen Jaffe, could be reached for comment.
