An update on the grade changing scandal at Pueblo High School. The superintendent postponed a school assembly in support of the principal -- Auggie Romero.

Three board members recently voted not to renew Romero's contract after releasing a report that showed Romero changed the grades of several graduating seniors without the teacher's consent -- a violation of state law.

Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo spent some time this morning fielding questions about why he postponed an assembly planned by students -- not teachers. He says some teachers were upset that they were not notified.

"They feel very strongly about that. How was this event planned? Why wasn't I given the opportunity to pick which kids need to stay with me. Some kids in my class have an F. Some kids in my class have work to make up," said Trujillo.

Trujillo says the assembly has now been moved to Monday.
