MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama's schools superintendent says a state investigation into grade-changing allegations at Montgomery Public Schools has turned up "significant findings."

Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice says he has been provided with a large number of documents related to the findings, which he called "troubling."

Bice said the findings uncovered in the investigation are serious enough that he planned to spend part of the upcoming holiday period reviewing the documents.

State officials have been investigating allegations of widespread cheating in the Montgomery system.

Reports say that employees who entered computer data at two Montgomery high schools say they witnessed school administrators violating school policy to help students achieve higher grades with little or no work.
