Parents notified, teacher reassigned following test scandal

NORWICH – Parents of a group of Norwich City School District middle schoolers have been notified that a state exam their children took last month has been thrown out due to teacher misconduct.

O’Sullivan said the district is not allowed to re-administer the exam.
