Montgomery Grade-Changing Investigation Almost Over


By Heather VacLav

The state's investigation into grade changing allegations in Montgomery's public schools should come to an end in two weeks.

State Superintendent Tommy Bice told the Montgomery Advertiser he is very pleased with the amount of evidence recovered by his investigators.

The allegations began after the the Advertiser reported teachers who worked at Lee, Jeff Davis, and Lanier High schools said they witnessed and or participated in changing of hundreds of grades.

Bice would not explain what his investigators have found so far, but he did say it was premature for the state to takeover the Montgomery school system.
