ATLANTA (AP) — More indicted Atlanta Public Schools educators have pleaded guilty to their involvement in a standardized test-cheating conspiracy.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that former Parks Middle School teacher Starlette Mitchell admitted to changing incorrect answers on tests between 2007 and 2009.

Former Venetian Hills Elementary principal Clarietta Davis pleaded guilty to making false statements.

Ex-Parks Middle School teacher Kimberly Oden pleaded guilty to obstruction.

Most defendants have been sentenced to probation, community service and have been ordered to return any bonuses they were paid for Criterion Referenced Competency Test scores that indicated improved student achievement.

Thirty-five educators were indicted in the cheating scandal.
