Test coaching alleged at LI school district

Posted: Updated:

GLEN COVE, N.Y. (AP) - Two Long Island elementary schools are being investigated for allegedly coaching students on exams.

Glen Cove Superintendent Joseph Laria said that the allegations, "if true, represent a grave disservice to the children, families and community."

He said no criminal misconduct was suspected and no charges were pending against any teachers or administrators.

The probe is looking at "protocols and practices applied during the administration" of exams last spring.

The statement, posted on the district's website, referred to "coaching" of students during the English Language Arts and math tests in grades three through five at two schools.
