ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The state investigation into evidence of CRCT tampering Dougherty County schools won't be finished any time soon. 

 At last month's school board meeting, school officials said they hoped the investigation wouldn't take much longer. Investigators examined some records they asked the school system to provide.

Now they say it may be next month before they resume the investigation, because finishing the investigation into Atlanta schools is taking longer than first thought.

 "They've apparently taken more time than they thought for a variety of reasons some of which is they found some things that they though were irregular and spent more time than they initially thought so got a call from Mr. Wilson, Bob Wilson who is one of the principal attorneys appointed by former Governor Perdue and he tell me it will be March," said School Board Attorney Tommy Coleman.

When the investigation resumes, GBI agents will question more teachers and school personnel. School officials want the investigation wrapped up before this year's CRCT's are given at the end of April.
