Davis said he was disappointed to find such widespread unethical behavior nearly three years since he took over in the wake of an investigation that found vast cheating on standardized tests in Atlanta schools.
“The stunning lengths some parents went to were disconcerting,” Davis said.

Tuition bills are being sent to students enrolled outside the Grady High area, and civil and criminal charges are being considered, Davis said.
