TIFTON, GA (WALB) – We have learned new details about a Tift County teacher accused of cheating on the C-R-C-T.

School officials still won't tell us the teacher's name, but we now know more about why she lost her job.

She's a 7th grade social studies teacher at 8th Street Middle School.

Superintendent Patrick Atwater says the school system learned last week the teacher gave out study guides to students based on the actual test booklet.

He says the system immediately reported the teacher to the professional standards commission which is investigating.

Atwater says the teacher's contract was not renewed and she is no longer in the classroom.

The tests taken by the students are invalid, but they won't have to re-take the C-R-C-T.
