MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Attorneys for the Montgomery Public School
System say based on the results of two independent investigations into
grade changing allegations at MPS, four employees can soon look forward
to returning to work.
According to a release issued by the
law firm, three of the six individuals originally named culpable in the
grade changing investigation have since been cleared of wrong doing. A
fourth employee was determined to have been acting on the behalf of a
supervisor who is no longer employed by the system. Those four employees
will be reinstated this week.
The law firm, Hill, Hill, Carter,
Franco, Cole & Black, also stated that there is substantial evidence
that the two other employees were involved in making improper grade
changes and disciplinary action against those employees will continue.
investigation had to be done to ensure there were no mistakes in the
process," said James Seale, attorney for the system. "The two
independent investigations came to essentially the same conclusions. We
are confident in the findings."
"This has been a difficult
process, and I am happy to see it is moving toward a resolution," said
Superintendent Barbara W. Thompson."We are grateful to Alabama State
Superintendent Tommy Bice for his leadership in assembling an
experienced investigative team to look into these allegations. We also
want to thank retired FBI Agent John Mulligan who conducted a concurrent
investigation on behalf of the board. We have worked to be as
transparent as possible given the legal restrictions."
Hearings for the two remaining individuals implicated in the investigation are forthcoming.
