ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Atlanta Public School System admitted Monday it has a problem with cheating on standardized tests.

Dougherty County school leaders still insist there are no such problems here. The state ordered both systems to investigate possible tampering.

Atlanta turned in its report Monday. The Governor's Office of Student Achievement rejected Dougherty County's first report and asked for more information.

That office is now reviewing the response sent in by Dougherty County Schools. The consulting firm the system hired to conduct the investigation says it found no pattern of cheating.

"The Atlanta School system received a terrible report today and we'd hate to see this happen in Dougherty County," said DCSS Public Information Director, R.D. Harter. "Our report shows we have no evidence of systemic cheating in our school system."

The Governor's Office of Student Achievement expects to respond to Dougherty County's updated investigative report in a couple of weeks.
