State Revokes License Of Figure In CCS Data Rigging Scandal

Columbus City Schools

One of the key figures in the Columbus City Schools' attendance data scrubbing scandal has had her license revoked. The Ohio Board of Education voted yesterday to revoke Tiffany Chavers' licenses to teach or serve as a principal.  Chavers was fired in 2013 after she was caught changing student attendance records to improve performance ratings at Linden-McKinley STEM Academy. Chavers and former Marion-Franklin High School principal Pamela Diggs have withdrawn their wrongful termination lawsuit. In 2015, a judge dismissed Chavers' appeal to overturn her civil service termination.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
