Davenport's Madison School Re-Takes Tests After Cheating
This week, Madison Elementary Students re-took the state math and reading test while Davenport district officials watched.
This comes after officials discovered that test answers had been changed, which uncovered a cheating scandal. District administrators have been investigating how this happened and have turned their results over the state.
Superintendent Tate says now the ball is in the state's court.
"Someone else will come down and look at our investigatory work and perhaps ask different questions and talk to different people," Davenport superintendent Dr. Arthur Tate said.
The new test scores won't count toward state assessment, and the school will not make adequate yearly progress, meaning it will be labeled as "in need of assistance".
With this status, parents could be offered another option for where their children to go to school.
