School board discusses principal suspension


Mart ISD school board members discuss investigation on testing irregularities under high school principal.

Mart High School principal LouAnn Wolf is on paid administrative leave after findings of possible irregularities in testing practices. Superintendent Todd Gooden updated school board members Wednesday on the investigation into the accusations. That meeting was in a closed executive session because it involved personnel matters.

However before the meeting, Gooden said there would be no witnesses called and he would just update board members. 

Gooden says Wolf was accused from within the school Wednesday, April 27 for irregularities on the 11th grade TAKS Test. Officials immediately contacted the Texas Education Agency and the investigation began the same day. Gooden says the district is conducting the investigation themselves using guidelines from the TEA. 

"Testing irregularity is a very serious matter," Gooden said. 

Gooden says this will be a long process and there's no use speculating on any kind of future punishment.
