(AJC) — About 30 Atlanta Public School employees implicated in a state cheating scandal have resigned or retired rather than go through termination, and the Fulton County district attorney has been asked to identify educators who won’t be prosecuted so the district can handle those cases first if it chooses. Superintendent Erroll Davis made those disclosures Thursday night at a town hall meeting in Buckhead. Davis said 130 to 150 educators named in a state investigative report released July 5 remained employed with the district, and the district was still deciding what to do next. The report named 178 educators, including 38 principals, as participants in improving students’ state test scores. More than 80 APS employees confessed to cheating. “I will tell you what they will not being doing,” Davis said. “They will not being going in front of children.” Davis also revealed that he met with Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, Jr. for nearly an hour Thursday. He would not release details of the conversation, other than to say the two discussed how their entities would proceed in dealing with educators implicated in the scandal.
