Reaction and Results from an Investigation into MPS Grade Changing
Montgomery Public Schools Superintendent Barbara Thompson says state and local investigations revealed that 200 students grades have been changed at two high schools in the last school year. Thompson says seven personnel were involved, and they have been placed on immediate leave.
Thompson is not giving us the names of the seven personnel involved because of legality. But she is telling CBS 8 News grades were changed at Lanier and Lee High Schools, and that no teacher was involved.
"There were some grades and other things, transcripts, that were altered and changed in this district. That we know is a fact," says Thompson.
Keith is a whistle blower in this investigation. She says she believes more than seven people were involved.
As for parents, some say the results are concerning.
We did ask State School Superintendent Tommy Bice about today's press conference. He says he has no comment on the investigation.
The State Board of Education is meeting this Thursday morning at 9:30.
