School Catches Cheaters, Cancels Graduation

Some parents in an Ohio school district that canceled graduation because of a vast cheating scandal are going to have one on their own.

School officials say they took their action because the scheme was so pervasive.

Superintendent Dorothy Holden says the district had to take a stand and let students know that cheating, or knowing about it and not reporting it, can't be tolerated. Diplomas will be mailed.

The parents organizing an unofficial graduation ceremony say they're angry about the cancellation.

The district says it has identified a student who apparently accessed shared file folders on teachers' computers.

Holden says some students admit they cheated; others said they
knew but didn't participate. Others said they had the tests but didn't use them.

One student who used the test still failed.
