Officials from the New Rochelle School District are investigating a potential case of grade inflation and “questionable practices,” regarding the high school’s online classroom program according to a lohud report released this week.
According to the report, documents obtained show a “pattern of someone entering perfect scores for some seniors’ work” in 2016 in the stretch leading into graduation season. Sometimes that work was incomplete or other times didn’t make sense, the report states.
Officials said that they will be hiring an independent investigator to investigate the potential misappropriations or grade inflating.
“The City School District of New Rochelle has instructed district legal counsel to identify an independent outside investigator to look into any questions of possible irregularities or improprieties in the New Rochelle High School online credit recovery program. This will be treated as an urgent inquiry,” the statement said.
