Former Atlanta Superintendent Beverly Hall Surrenders In CRCT Cheating Scandal

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK)-Former Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Beverly Hall arrived at the Fulton County jail on charges associated with her alleged involvement in a standardized test cheating scandal.

Hall arrived at the jail Tuesday night, and her attorney,  J Tom Morgan — former DeKalb County District Attorney — says Hall’s legal team planned to have the disgraced educator out of jail before the end of the night. Hall and 34 other educators have been indicted on charges including racketeering, making false statements, theft and more.

Hall’s bond was initially recommended to be set at $7.5 million, but was later reduced to $200,000 Morgan said.

Before Hall arrived at the Fulton County Jail more than half of the 34 other educators indicted in the CRCT cheating scandal had also surrendered to authorities to begin the process of facing charges. The rest of the group had until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday to surrender to authorities at the Fulton County Jail.
