WKCTC Investigation Wrapping Up

Jan 28, 2013

The West Kentucky Community & Technical College has resolved issues around inaccurately reported test scores that led to the facility returning funds to the state.

Janett Blythe says WKCTC won a bid this month to keep providing adult education services to residents of McCracken and Graves counties. The state began investigating the school after a complaint that test scores were being altered. An audit found inaccuracies with student academic level gain percentages over at least three years, which allowed the school to collect $137,324 dollars it wasn't qualified for. WKCTC president Barbara Veazey says the school cooperated with the investigation into matter. Records show that at least seven employees resigned amid the probe.
