Davis said Friday the Fulton County district attorney has begun notifying him of educators who have been cleared in the ongoing criminal investigation. Davis said the district can now begin moving forward with firing the remaining 120 educators still on payroll because he can't hold due process hearings until the district attorney rules in each case.
Atlanta is spending $600,000 per month paying for administrative leave for the educators six months after a state investigation revealed cheating in nearly half of the district's 100 schools. State investigators named nearly 180 educators.
A spokeswoman for the district attorney's office did not immediately return a request for comment.
