The Orange Unified School District has passed a policy that prohibits teachers from inflating grades on standardized tests by giving students inappropriate test preparation materials. A teacher who violates this policy could be suspended for the first offense and fired for the second.

The policy was adopted in response to an April incident in which an eighth-grade math teacher at Cerro Villa Middle School had distributed work sheets with questions lifted from the eighth-grade mathematics section of the Stanford 9 test.
