ATLANTA (AP) — A former middle school administrator is the latest person to plead guilty to charges related to a test cheating scandal in Atlanta Public Schools.

The office of District Attorney Paul Howard said in a news release Wednesday that former Parks Middle School assistant principal Gregory Reid pleaded guilty late Tuesday to two counts of obstruction.

Reid is one of 35 educators indicted in March after being accused of changing standardized test scores or giving students the correct answers. He is the fifth educator to reach a negotiated plea with the prosecution.

Reid was sentenced to serve two years on probation, to perform 500 hours of community service and to pay $5,000 in restitution for the bonus money he received for meeting specific test score targets.
