Does the 9.7-inch iPad (2018) support the Apple Pencil?

The 9.7-inch iPad launched at Apple's education event on March 27, 2018 does support the Apple Pencil. This makes it the first non-iPad Pro model to support the $99 stylus.

Apple did release a 9.7-inch iPad Pro that supported the Apple Pencil, but it was eventually replaced by the larger 10.5-inch model. The current 9.7-inch model is also cheaper at $329 for consumers and $299 for schools.
