Former Teacher Meets With Investigators About MPS Grade Changing Allegations
A former public school teacher who says she witnessed hundreds of grades being changed has now met with school board and state investigators.
Lesa Keith, a former Lee High School teacher, says It took hours to compile her evidence. An entire box full of emails, grade reports, names and numbers. Some of her own, and some from other teachers.
She says it's proof that hundreds of grades were being changed at Lee High School for the last couple years.
But she says they did not listen to or take her tape recordings, which she says has school officials admitting to what was going on.
CBS 8 News asked her if she believed the state knew about the alleged grade changing?
"The state knew about it long before they were brought in," she says.
Keith thinks the solution is a state take over.
CBS 8 did get in touch with one school board member Mary Briers. She says she is reserving her judgement, and hasn't heard when the investigation will wrap up.
There will be a school board meeting tomorrow. To look at the agenda: http://www.mps.k12.al.us/Default.asp?PN=MeetingSchedule&L=1&DivisionID=5811&LMID=232476&ToggleSideNav=
