State investigation of MPS grade-changing expands

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama State Department of Education is expanding its investigation into grade-changing within the Montgomery Public School system.

The State's initial investigation found as many as 200 students had their grades changed at three area high schools.

State Superintendent Dr. Tommy Bice says he will not discuss the scope of the investigation until it is completed. This more expansive investigation is being done independently of any MPS involvement.

Dr. Bice said the initial investigation was designed to be limited in scope to allow MPS to take appropriate action on its own. A total of six employees went on leave after both a state and MPS investigation confirmed grade changing within the system.

Officials said evidence cleared three employees and shows a fourth acted only on the direction of a supervisor who is no longer with the system.

There is still substantial evidence against two other employees.
