Allegations of grade-changing at North Atlanta High are being investigated by Atlanta Public Schools, according to news reports.
District spokesman Stephen Alford said the investigation could cover a wide array of grade-changing allegations, according to WSB-TV. Due to new standards instituted after the districtwide CRCT cheating scandal, details about this investigation can not yet be released.
In September, North Atlanta High's then-interim principal Mark MyGrant was fired suddenly and several top administrators were also reassigned. The firing sparked protests from students and parents who wanted answers.
APS Superintendent Erroll Davis said the firing was due to the school's low graduation rate and its low academic performance of students. MyGrant thinks it may have something to do with two of his recent hires, whom were anonymous accused of being racists, according to news reports.
The new high school principal begins Monday.
