Oklahoma Superintendent Calls For Investigation Into Grade Tampering Allegations

Mar 20, 2018

Oklahoma Education officials have asked the State Bureau of Investigation to look into allegations of fraud and grade-tampering at Chickasha Public Schools.

A probe by the State Department of Education found evidence of more than 5,000 changes to course grades and nearly 19,000 changes to individual assignment grades within an online learning program offered by the high school.

State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister called the district’s lack of oversight “disturbing” and said the integrity of student records must never be compromised.

The state auditor is preparing to investigate the district’s finances as well.
