4 workers to be reinstated in grade-changing case
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Montgomery school officials say four of the seven Montgomery Public Schools employees placed on paid administrative leave during an investigation into improper grade changing will be reinstated.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports (http://on.mgmadv.com/11PrgPY) that three employees were cleared of all wrongdoing, and a fourth was found to have only followed the directions of a supervisor.
The development was announced in a news release from school system attorneys Spud Seale and Jayne Williams. The news release did not name the four employees who are returning. School officials say they cooperated fully with the investigation and will be reinstated to their positions this week.
Investigations by state and district officials found grades were changed for more than 200 students at three high schools to make the schools' performance records look better.
