Dougherty County School Superintendent Dr. Joshua Murfree and School Board Attorney Tommy Coleman returned to Albany after a get-acquainted meeting with the man who will investigate the system.

Former Georgia Attorney General Michael Bowers Friday at his Atlanta offices. Bowers and his investigative team will be in Albany starting August 8th to begin a probe into allegations on cheating on Criterion Referenced Competency Tests.

Many Albany test sheets showed erasure marks that drew red flags from outside examiners, before Murfree's term started.

WALB News spoke with Coleman by telephone as he and Murfree were returning from their meeting with Bowers. Coleman described the face-to-face meeting as friendly and cordial.

As many as 350 Albany teachers may be interviewed by Bowers before his investigation is complete.
