VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Two people are in jail Monday accused of falsifying documents to get a child into the Lowndes County School system.

41-year old Elizabeth Williams and 35-year old Abigail Hunter are charged with providing false statements. Investigators say Hunter let Williams use her address, and they falsified an affidavit required for students to attend school and forged utility bills.

"When you see someone who uses such deception to get their students into the school system when they're not even paying taxes in the Lowndes County School district, it's just not fair to the Lowndes County School system for us to allow that to happen," said Lowndes County Schools Superintendent Dr. Steve Smith.

Dr. Steve Smith says at the board's work session Monday, he'll propose giving parents an amnesty period to withdraw their students.
