Several Dougherty County teachers who were named in the state's CRCT cheating reports have had their records cleared.

The Georgia Professional Standards Commission found no probable cause for Debra Warren, Debora Anderson, Elicia Evans, and Trina Faulkner of Alice Coachman Elementary, along with Katrice Kegler and Betty Phelps who worked at Sherwood Acres.

The Dougherty County school system did not take action against these teachers during their own investigation.  
The Georgia PSC suspended Robert Lee Bowman's certificate for one year.  

Bowman resigned last year.  

Valerie Overstreet, the former principal of Lamar Reese Middle School and Monroe High School received a reprimand from the PSC.

Nearly 50 Dougherty educators were named in the 2009 scandal.
