SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Approximately 20 students at a Santa Fe high school obtained a teacher’s password and used it to change test and course grades.

Capital High Principal Channell Wilson-Segura says the students were suspended for two days and will have to start classes over again. She says some students not starting classes over may not have enough credits to graduate.

District Chief of Staff Latifah Phillips says Wilson-Segura has the support of Superintendent Joel Boyd in deciding to treat the matter as a “teachable moment.”

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/1hlBvmq , the district’s Code of Conduct gives schools some flexibility for punishing students caught cheating.

Punishment can range from one day of in-school suspension to 10 days of out-of-school suspension.
