CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / GRANADA HILLS

Charter students got access to SAT

October 23, 2008|Mitchell Landsberg

Brian Bauer, executive director of Granada Hills Charter High School, confirmed this week that students had gained access to the SAT exam one day before it was given. "Two in particular had reviewed it and a handful were involved in removing copies of the exam before the exam took place," Bauer said. He later said a total of five students were involved.

The Educational Testing Service is investigating the incident, which means that the scores from the Oct. 4 administration of the college entrance exam could be invalidated.

Bauer said the exam had been stored on campus and was under the supervision of a school employee who had been hired by the Educational Testing Service as the "test supervisor." That person was responsible for ensuring the security of the test, Bauer said.

Bauer said he could not discuss in detail what action the school had taken, "except to say the gamut of discipline, including suspension and removal from the school, is being considered and in some cases has been taken" against the students, "and the same would apply to any particular employee or employees."
