Middleton School District holds listening session on academic integrity


Middleton High School has a new policy in place for students during finals week after district officials made changes amidst cheating allegations.
Parents had the chance to attend a listening session Wednesday night at Middleton High School to learn more about recent academic integrity issues.
Last month, 250 students had to retake an Advanced Placement math test because a few allegedly cheated on tests using their cellphones.
District officials said it’s been a wake-up call, and they now have a new policy in place. On test days, students have to put their cellphones in a basket and will get them back when everyone has turned in their tests.
District officials said most teachers already have policies like this, but now the rule is official.
