A teacher in the Highland School District has reportedly been reprimanded for guiding students who were taking a standardized test to change an answer. The district received information from nearly a dozen students about the alleged change while they were taking the Illinois State Achievement Tests.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the district would not name the teacher in question or at what school the incident took place, but issued what’s called a “notice of remedial warning” against the teacher who has denied the allegations. Superintendent Michael Sutton says the instructor remains on duty and will receive additional training on district policies.
