ATLANTA (AP) -- Nearly three dozen people are facing a deadline to report to jail after being charged in the Atlanta public schools cheating scandal.
The educators are required to surrender into custody by Tuesday, and a judge will decide their bond.
A grand jury recommended bond totaling $7.5 million for former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Beverly Hall.
Hall faces charges including conspiracy, making false statements and theft because prosecutors say some pay bonuses she received were tied to falsified scores on standardized tests.
Hall's lawyers deny she had any involvement in cheating.
In all, 35 former administrators, teachers, principals and other educators are charged in the scandal.
It's not unusual for court officials to allow defendants to surrender to jail in cases that don't involve violence.
