ATLANTA -- State officials say Atlanta Public Schools has agreed to repay more than $363,000 in federal money won because of cheating on student tests.
State schools Superintendent John Barge told The Associated Press on Friday the district has 90 days to pay the money. He said, in exchange, the state is placing five specialists in the 50,000-student district and providing training for educators until at least June.
A state investigation in July revealed widespread cheating by educators in nearly half of the district's 100 schools dating back to 2001.
