Lockland (Ohio) board fires superintendent over alleged manipulation of student records

Aug. 24, 2012
37 students who failed all or part of state exams were listed as “withdrawn” from the district

From The Cincinnati Enquirer: The Lockland (Ohio) school board has fired the district superintendent and her son – who also worked in the district – amid accusations of student records manipulation. Superintendent Donna Hubbard and son Adam Stewart – the district’s data coordinator – say they plan to fight the action. The small school district is under state investigation for improperly listing 37 students as withdrawn from the district in 2010-11. All 37 students failed all or parts of the state achievement or graduation tests. The state says because Lockland listed them as withdrawn, the district and school report card scores were inflated.
