I just have one question. What is in the policy book as far as punishment for a student caught cheating? Im sure the rules doesn't state that graduation will be cancelled, does it. There are policies and procedures in every school, why were they not followed? If this was known among the teachers, why was nothing done in January when it happened? Everyone is pointing fingers and blaming everyone else. It shouldn't have happened I agree but why wasn't it handled when it happened and by the policies that were set in place by either your boe or the principal. I thought thats why we have rules.....

I think its sad, one parent waited 13 years and may not be around long....thats what she was holding on for

If so many students were involved I am sure not just one student hacked into the computer as you say. Probably several had the password to enter the computer. It is not fair to blame just one student. Several were probaby involved and all were just as guilty and should have been equally punished.

... absolutely criminal ... cancel ... ceremony.... 47 seniors who did NOT, I REPEAT, NOT, cheat.... in order to graduate..... To those remaining 47, I hope you sue each and every BOE member for MILLIONS!!! Not only sue the entire BOE, but the BOE members individually as well as the 50 seniors!!... never gain the support of the community ever again.... wrong how they handled this situation. Punish 47 seniors who did nothing. SO WRONG!!

1. Are you saying that the 47 had absolutely NO knowledge of the theft and offer yo share the tests?

2. "Never" is a long, very long time.

Scott, you are the idiot. Obama was the messiah for young kids, but he did everything he could to stomp out Christianity and the moral values that have held this country together. It's clear these kids were thinking "Yes I can...cheat!" when they stole the tests. Now everyone is complaining about facing the consequences of their actions rather than being a man and taking responsibility. THIS IS WHAT SOCIALISM DOES TO OUR YOUTH
ugh if you are going to criticize one party over the other, dontcha think you are a little partisan???

It is possible for them to not know, I found out later in life that a lot of things happened when I was in school. And besides, just say all 97 did know, how well do you think that big secret would have been kept to the kids. Wouldn't you think there was a few in the School system who knew it earlier as well?

I just heard that none of the students from this call except one wanted to discuss this scandal for a CNBC report show about cheating. So they continue the cover-up - shame on them.
