FILE - In a Feb. 20, 2009 file photo, Beverly Hall, Atlanta superintendent of public schools, holds up her award after she was named the 2009 Superintendent of the Year at the American Association of School Administrators' National Conference on Education in San Francisco. Longtime Atlanta schools chief Beverly Hall has been lauded nationally as a model superintendent for turning around a struggling urban district. But the Jamaica native is retiring under a cloud of suspicion from allegations of widespread cheating in the 50,000-student district and accusations by a former employee that she ordered a cover up of test tampering. Hall is set to leave her job on June 30, just days before state investigators are expected to announce the results of a yearlong probe into whether educators changed answers on students' tests. Hall and others could face criminal charges in the case. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File) less
