Disciplinary proceedings have begun against four educators charged in the probe of cheating on standardized tests at Cayuga Elementary.
Evelyn Cortez, Rita Wyszynski, Jennifer Hughes, and Ary Sloane were summoned Tuesday to Philadelphia School District headquarters. They face criminal charges of felony conspiracy, tampering with public records, forgery, and related crimes.
The district could move to fire the four, who are scheduled to appear in court this month. "Conferences were held this morning and decisions regarding disciplinary outcomes will be made as soon as possible," said spokeswoman Raven Hill.
Cortez was until recently Cayuga's principal. Wyszynski and Hughes are teachers at the school, and Sloane, a former Cayuga teacher, had gone on to be principal of Bethune Elementary, another district school.
