Columbus City Schools superintendent, Dan Good, says the district will further cooperate with investigators of data rigging. Top administrator, Steven Tankovich was found guilty of tampering with evidence on Thursday. But, Good says on Friday he’s uncertain when the investigation will finish.

“I don’t know the answer to that yet. You know, as I said, the investigations continue to occur and we’re being very supportive,” says Good.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien says he expects two more district officials to enter pleas to criminal charges within the next month. A state audit found some district employees changed student grade and attendance data in a bid to make the district show better on state rankings.
