Update: Allegations of Irregularities in Monroe school's testing

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8) - KNOE 8 News is uncovering more information regarding a breach in security at a local school involving state issued tests.

Interim Superintendent Derenda Flowers tells KNOE allegations were raised that a 7th grade teacher at Carroll Jr. High School was teaching directly from the iLeap/Leap tests last week. Students are currently taking those tests this week, starting today 4/8/13.

"The information has been delivered to the schools now for several weeks, but it is under lock and key," says Flowers, "we have examined our booklets and there have been no broken seals and no books are missing."

 Flowers says the district's investigation shows that no seals were broken on any of the tests prior to the start of today's examinations.

"We've been in contact with the state department throughout the entire process," says Flowers, "and they've given us the ok to proceed as normal with the testing."
