The Tulsa charter school, Langston Hughes Academy for Arts and Technology, is under investigation after accusations arose that the principal, assistant principal, principal's secretary and special education coordinator changing students' grades.

On Wednesday, the school's Board of Education President Carmen Pettie released a statement to parents, teachers and students on the incident.

We, the Langston Hughes Academy for Arts and Technology Board of Education, were notified this week of allegations that our superintendent/principal, assistant principal, principal's secretary and special education coordinator changed or directed teachers to change students' grades. Upon receiving this information, we immediately notified the State Department of Education and will be working closely with them to address the matter. In the best interest of our school and students and pending results of the investigation, we have taken action to immediately suspend the superintendent/principal, assistant principal, principal's secretary and special education coordinator. We are shocked and deeply troubled at these claims but will cooperate fully throughout the investigation. We will provide no further comment at this time.

The principal, assistant principal, principal's secretary and special education coordinator of Langston Hughes Academy are currently suspended until further notice amid the investigation.
