SPRING, Texas (AP) - A school district north of Houston says the graduation eligibility of nearly 600 students has been jeopardized by a series of errors committed by administrators, some dating back years.

Spring officials are rushing to verify whether the high school students have met state requirements to graduate. Officials say the problems include students being directed to repeatedly take the same course despite passing each time.

The review was prompted by a state notice the district received in December saying it had not received exam data for some students.

School Superintendent Rodney Watson tells the Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1A2qLp3) a high school principal and a former chief academic officer working on the district’s special projects team have resigned.

District officials say some students will need summer courses to meet last-minute requirements.
