GLEN COVE- - Fines were issued Thursday in response to the cheating scandal in the Glen Cove School District.
Two administrators and six teachers were fined more than $145,000, according to Newsday.
The scandal involves allegations of test coaching and grade changing in 2012. A high school student's failing Regents Exam grade was reportedly changed to passing, while nearly two dozen teachers at the elementary schools were found to have improperly helped students on their state tests.
Today, Glen Cove Schools Superintendent Maria Rianna, told News 12 Long Island that "officials from the State Education Department have observed our process over the last two years and commended the District on its practices." Rianna went on to say "we are confident that student assessments have been implemented securely and with integrity and will continue in this manner moving forward."
News 12 reached out to the teachers and administrators involved in the settlement. One said they had no comment, while the others did not return calls.
