ATLANTA (AP) -- The Georgia Professional Standards Commission has
voted to issue a yearlong ban to four Glynn County educators involved in a statewide test cheating scandal.

The commission's Thursday vote comes after a state audit released this summer found evidence that standardized test answer sheets had been tampered with at four elementary schools across the state last year.

The commission had planned to act on six educators from school districts in Fulton County, Glynn County and Atlanta, but ran out of time for two of the cases.

Those cases will now be heard in December.

In September, two DeKalb County educators involved in the scandal had their licenses revoked by the commission.

Former Atherton Elementary principal James Berry is banned from Georgia schools for two years, and former assistant principal Doretha
Alexander is suspended for a year.
