APS investigating grade-changing allegations at N. Atlanta High

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -


The Atlanta Public Schools Office of Internal Compliance is investigating grade-changing allegations at North Atlanta High School.

District spokesperson Steve Alford confirmed to FOX 5's Kaitlynn Pratt that there is an open case, but couldn't say what sparked it or the nature of the alleged grade-changing. He also would not say when the investigation began or would it might conclude.

The school has been the site of turmoil in recent weeks. APS Superintendent Erroll Davis ordered the sudden removed of interim principal Mark Mygrant and members of his administration a few weeks ago. That sparked protest by students and parents, including a letter-writing campaign that urged APS not to renew Davis' contact.

Parent Cynthia Brown said the latest allegation is another distraction for students.

"Kids thrive on structure an order. We had an orderly school until 2-and-a-half weeks ago," Brown said. "Teachers are scared. I've had several teachers tell me when the door to their classroom opens they feel like the APS is going to burst in the room and take their computers and march them to the parking lot."

Brown said that the superintendent met with parents and students a few weeks ago. She said that was the perfect time for him to talk about this investigation, but he did not.

 Brown said that she is looking forward, like other parents, to Monday when a new principal is slated to start at the school. Brown said that this is a fresh start -- a new chance that all the students are looking forward to and need at this point.
