Worth school officials terminated

April 29, 2004

Sylvester-- Worth County taxpayers will no longer have to pay the salaries of two school administrators who helped students cheat on tests.

The school superintendent says the contracts of Assistant Superintendent Dr. Bruce Washington and Assistant Worth County High principal Vera Giddens will not be renewed.

Washington and Giddens were suspended with pay last May after they were caught helping students cheat on the Georgia High School Graduation test. But they've remained on the county payroll, and that's cost taxpayers in excess of $100,000.

Superintendent Gary Russell says the board decided April 15th not to renew their contracts. Washington and Giddens have 20 days to respond. Bruce Washington is also a Sylvester City Councilman.
