Emails, Documents Show University High Administrators Involved in Academic Wrongdoing

Three former University High School administrators played key roles in academic wrongdoings at UHS during the 2015-16 school year, despite initially denying the claims, documents and emails obtained by the Tribune-Herald reveal.

A 20-page factual summary report and comments found in a haystack of 1,100 emails directly tie former principal Kendra Strange, former dean of instruction Ronald Massey and former senior counselor Mindy Place to awarding course credit to some 2016 graduates who did not properly earn the credits. The administrators also failed to follow proper procedures for credit-recovery programs and for end-of-course retesting, according to findings in an external investigation report released in October and turned over to the Texas Education Agency for review.
