ALBANY, Ga. (AP) -- School officials are scheduling August hearings for 24 teachers and two principals in southwest Georgia whose contracts weren't renewed after they were named in Gov. Nathan Deal's report on test cheating.
The Albany Herald reports that hearings for the Dougherty County educators have been scheduled for the first two weeks of Augusta.
The school board's attorney, Tommy Coleman, confirmed the dates to the newspaper.
The tribunals give the teachers and administrators a chance to appeal losing their jobs.
A state investigation released last December concluded at least 49 educators in Dougherty County were involved in cheating in some way during standardized testing in 2009.
