ATLANTA - The first tribunal for an Atlanta Public School administrator implicated in the district’s test cheating scandal was held Friday.
This week, 67 accused APS educators have been disciplined. The commission gave 48 teachers a two year license suspension and revoked credentials for 19 others in leadership posts.
All of the accused educators also face sanctions from the school system, and some could face criminal prosecution as well. Teachers who have cooperated with investigators are eligible to negotiate an agreement with the Attorney General's Office to lessen their punishments.
