23 grand jurors will be back at it Thursday, listening to a second day of testimony in Atlanta Public School cheating scandal.
Jurors began their work at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday and are could continue their work into Friday.
Channel 2 Action News reports witnesses included principals, teachers, testing coordinators, testing experts, parents, students, state education workers and others.
None of those testifying are expected to be charged with a crime. Many of the witnesses say the school system retaliated against those that didn’t cheat.
Channel 2 also reports a main feature of the Fulton County District Attorney case erasure analysis and psychometrics, which is the measurement of mental traits, abilities and processes.
The DA will also bring up bonuses for APS employees ranging from former Superintendent Beverly Hall to rank-and-file teachers.
At least 35 defendants are named in the proposed indictment, including ranking administrators, principals, teachers and others, the source acknowledged, a source told Channel 2.
The defendants in the drafted indictment include top administrators, principals and teachers.
Hall’s attorney says the former superintendent is maintaining her innocence regarding any allegations related to CRCT cheating or criminal wrongdoing. He says neither he nor Hall have been contacted by the DA or the grand jury.
Several people were seen coming and going inside the Fulton County District Attorney's Office. But grand jury hearings are secret, so the office would not confirm if any of the people were in fact there for the grand jury.
The Atlanta Public Schools system said in a statement Wednesday, "This is a legal matter between the individuals implicated and the Fulton County District Attorney's Office, and we will allow the legal process to take its course."
