GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (AP) - A Berkeley County high school principal and athletic director have returned to work after a probe of allegations of tampering with a student-athlete’s grades.

WCIV-TV (http://bit.ly/1Tw7eEU) reports that the district announced the return Friday of the two Goose Creek High School officials. Principal Jimmy Huskey and Athletic Director Cynthia McBride were placed on administrative leave earlier in the week.

The news station had obtained a letter in which acting Berkeley County Superintendent Michael Turner on Wednesday informed school board members that officials recently had a student’s grades changed.

According to the letter, a guidance counselor was directed to change a student-athlete’s grades from “failure due to absences” to passing grades.
