MIAMI -- The principal of a Miami charter school has been accused of tampering with materials for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
The Miami Herald reports Ramz Academy principal Julio Cabrera allegedly opened sealed test booklets, took handwritten notes on the questions and distributed "study guides" to teachers.
School attorney Carmen Calzon says Cabrera, a teacher, and an employee charged with overseeing the test's administration have been suspended.
Thousands of children across Florida are taking the annual reading and math assessment this week. The students at Ramz Academy in Miami's Little Havana will take the exam as soon as new test materials are available.
Both Miami-Dade Public Schools and Ramz Academy have begun investigations to look into the alleged tampering.
