Perhaps a stupid question, but will they face TSSA punishment?

Good question.  

If the football coach asked for grade changes it could be an issue for eligibility.

"Some student’s grades were changed to help them with college and sports participation, other students, who the administration deem undesirable and they “wanted out of the school” , were changed to remove them from the Anderson County School system."

 

This has to be a massive lawsuit waiting to happen.

Just think of the silly reason Derek Rang lost his job at Powell and look at this mess. They don't have a choice, they'll have to let him go. 

To me they are similar. Rang literally worked out all the problems from the test and left the room to go “potty because he couldn’t hold it anymore” while Keith just do the old fashioned white out a grade and change it. 
what is crazy to me is that OR hired rang. 
I was told GQ tried to get rang for years but they wouldn’t allow it due to his past

Not even close, changing over 1000 grades?  Head coach changing grades to keep players on the field?  Not the same.  They will give Lieutenant Flip Flops the "Opportunity to resign"  right after graduation if not before.

Still believe that AC brass started the fire. 

Negative, the juvenile court judge blew the whistle.  Clinton admin, teachers and coaches started this fire.  Been going on for 4 years now according to Jones, one of the teachers that was fired.  This is truly pathetic.  

The Dragon Wagon is #### up in the ditch down on highway 61 down there near The Spur.  Reap what you sew.

Yeah. AC brass walked in to the building at Clinton and suggested that the principal start changing grades. 

Honesty, the notion that anybody at AC was involved is just idiocy. 

The ones who are hurt most are the kids who weren't involved in the cheating, but still are being penalized by college admission decisions and scholarship consideration simply because they went to a school that was involved in such a scandal.

I would have to think that the firing of the 2 teachers is just the beginning of future moves.  If not, it is woefully short.  If the AC school board thinks that the damage is just limited to Clinton, they are sadly mistaken.  Any outsider would view the whole school system as suspect, and rightly so.

As somebody mentioned before, this is going to result in a massive lawsuit, can you imagine professional "educators" actually having the conversation about getting "the bad kids" out of the high school?  And the head coach asking directly to change grades, gets turned down, comes back again and gets it approved?  This is unbelievable.  In addition to the lawsuit, the state Department of Education is going to come down extremely hard on this.  WYSH is on the war path.  There could be dozens more lose their jobs by the time this is over.  And yeah the real shame is the kids being affected that literally had nothing to do with this and actually worked hard to earn their grades.
