ALBANY — Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards said Friday afternoon that his is office is in the process of preparing "ask we speak" to transfer some individual CRCT case files to Dougherty County School System attorney Tommy Coleman.
Edwards said he could not say how many of the 44 individual case files Coleman would initially get, saying the "exact number is difficult to quantify."
"We are ready to turn over some files to Mr. Coleman," Edwards said. "We have determined that these cases should be handled by the school board's administrative tribunals. We are looking more closely at some other files for possible prosecution."
In late December of last year, investigators turned in a 293-page report to Governor Nathan Deal outlining cheating on CRCT tests in 11 of 16 DCSS elementary schools in 2009.
Forty-nine teachers and administrators were named in the report, but the number dwindled to 44 through retirements and several who were no longer with the system.
