All But One Administrator Put on Leave Over Texas School District Cheating Scandal Reinstated

Seven of the eight administrators put on leave due to a cheating scandal have been reinstated.

El Paso ISD Trustees reinstated the three principals and four assistant principals after testimony from over 100 speakers Tuesday night.

Supporters of the eight administrators argued for the reinstatement using the defense that the employees were not told why they were put on leave, even though the cheating scandal was widely covered and reported.

The one administrator that was not reinstated was Luis Loya, the principal for the Center for Career and Technology Education.

Loya can appeal the decision.

An outside audit that was released Monday found test rigging and grade manipulation conducted by administrators.

So far only one superintendent, Lorenzo Garcia, is serving prison time for the fraud.

If Loya does not appeal, or loses a possible appeal, it will bring the number of administrators connected to the cheating to be punished to two.
