Clark County school officials plan Nov. 13 report on West Las Vegas school test score probe


LAS VEGAS — Clark County school officials plan to outline corrective actions taken after several educators were removed in April in an investigation of cheating on standardized tests at a West Las Vegas elementary school.

District spokeswoman Kirsten Searer says the school board will get a report Nov. 13.

Several pastors and community leaders announced Wednesday they expect an apology from state and local school officials for declaring in April that wrong responses had been changed to right ones on standardized test answer sheets. Test scores for 2012 were nullified.

Former state assemblyman and past NAACP president Gene Collins says two of three administrators suspended in the probe have returned to work.

Collins says that shows they didn't do anything wrong, while the community has been left with a vague cloud of scandal.
