Colorado Springs teachers accused of cheating will not return for upcoming school year
Two fifth-grade teachers in Colorado Springs' Harrison School District 2 who were placed on paid administrative leave in May following accusations of cheating on state assessments will not return to teach at Stratton Meadows Elementary School this academic year, according to Superintendent Andre Spencer.
"They are no longer with us," he said Friday. "They decided they no longer wanted to remain in our district."
District officials reported the teachers to the Colorado Department of Education after a parent complained about "a potential sharing of inappropriate information" from teachers to students on English and math tests from the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers system.
