Leadership changes made at DuVal HS in Prince George's Co. after grade-fixing audit
PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) —
Changes are being made to the leadership team at DuVal High School in Prince George's County after a probe into grade-fixing at the school, officials announced Monday.
Officials say that the audit, conducted by Prince George’s County Board of Education’s Office of Internal Audit, showed that some of the staffers at the school "made inappropriate decisions that impacted the grading and graduation certification processes."
The audit included data from 2016 and 2017 student grades and graduation rates at DuVal.
Prince George's County Public School officials say a team of supervisors will help DuVal deal with the staffing changes in the interim.
The news comes just days after the principal at Ballou High School lost her job after D.C. Public Schools released its study about grade and attendance issues at a number of high schools within the city.
