Atlanta Schools Subpoenaed In Cheating Case

ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta Public Schools is notifying parents that it will have to turn over students’ education information in response to a subpoena.

Reports indicate the subpoena is related to the criminal case against former educators who are accused of cheating on standardized tests.

School system officials say the information could be made available to court officials starting Friday.

In March, former Superintendent Beverly Hall and the other 34 educators were named in a 65-count indictment that alleges a conspiracy to cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistleblowers in an effort to bolster student test scores and, as a result, receive bonuses and accolades for improved student performance.

Each could face five to 20 years in prison if convicted of all the charges.
