Report finds violations with ACT tests

LOUISVILLE — A former high school principal and two others have been referred to the Education Professional Standards Board after an investigation by the Kentucky Department of Education found violations with standardized testing.

According to the Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1pWFLTN ), the investigation report released Monday found principal David Mike, counselor Rhonda Branch and teacher Debbie Greenberg violated rules while giving the ACT Compass Test.

Kentucky Department of Education Commissioner Terry Holliday told the newspaper that the three were referred to the educational standards board because the violations could prove to be intentional.

A Jefferson County Public Schools spokesman said Mike, who has been reassigned to non-instructional duties, declined to comment. Greenberg and Branch could not be located.

JCPS spokesman Ben Jackey says the district is reviewing the report as part of its own investigation.
