LAS VEGAS (AP) — The state superintendent is set to address the Nevada Board of Education about a cheating scandal uncovered at a Las Vegas elementary school.
Superintendent Dale Erquiaga is expected to speak at a meeting Thursday, the day after the state education department announced it was invalidating 2011-2012 test scores at Matt Kelly Elementary School.
An investigation concluded adults had altered standardized test answer sheets, leading to a dramatic increase in test scores at the traditionally low-performing school. The probe didn't determine exactly who corrected the tests.
A school district spokeswoman says Principal Patricia Harris, Assistant Principal Steven Niemeier and Associate Superintendent Andre Denson have been placed on leave. They could face disciplinary action including the revocation of their licenses.
