Transcript issues blamed for loss of scholarship

SPRING, TX -- Four more administrators have resigned from a school district north of Houston where the graduation eligibility of nearly 600 students has been jeopardized by a series of errors committed by district leaders, some dating back years.

The latest resignations announced Friday by the Spring school district bring to seven the number of administrators who have departed amid an investigation into various scheduling and transcript errors.

The Houston Chronicle reports the announcement comes ahead of a special meeting Sunday of the school board when Superintendent Rodney Watson is expected to seek the termination of five administrators.

Spring officials are rushing to verify whether the students have met state requirements to graduate. Officials say the problems include students being directed to repeatedly take the same course despite passing each time.
