Six Montgomery Public Schools educators accused of participating in a district-wide grade changing scheme are facing state trials.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the district's former assistant superintendent, two principals, an assistant principal and two teachers are expected to appear before an administrative law judge in December.

The newspaper reports the educators could lose their teaching certificates.

More than 40 Montgomery Public Schools employees were accused of participating in the grade-changing scheme, which led to the Alabama State Department of Education to investigate the district's grading procedures.

The district's former superintendent, Barbara Thompson, signed a separation agreement last month and was replaced by Interim Superintendent Margaret Allen.
