Three former DeKalb County principals indicted for alleged roles in cheating scandal

A DeKalb County grand jury has charged three former school administrators with numerous crimes related to a 2011 test cheating scandal.

According to 11 Alive, former principals Agnes Flanagan, Angela Jennings, and Derek Wooten all face at least five charges for offenses including forgery, making false statements, and public record fraud.

The move follows last month's grand jury indictment of nearly three dozen Atlanta Public Schools educators, including former superintendent Beverly Hall, for their alleged roles in an unrelated cheating scandal. The 35 administrators, principals, and teachers are charged with similar crimes, including racketeering.

It's been a rough few months for DeKalb County Schools. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools placed the entire school system on probation last December. A tumultuous battle with its school board members soon followed, which led to former Superintendent Cheryl Atkinson's resignation as well as the suspension of six board members by Gov. Nathan Deal.
