FORT MYERS, Fla.- Pressure is building for an investigation into Lee County School Superintendent Dr. Nancy Graham. The school board is planning to vote Tuesday night on whether to hire an outside attorney to check into her conduct after learning about allegations of cheating.

The incident occurred at Dunbar Community School in early April, when a girl was allowed to take a GED test, under the eye of proctor Mark Anderson.

She passed, but it was suggested that Anderson should not have been alone in the room with the girl, and he should not have had his cellphone with him. The school district first put him on paid administrative leave and then the board decided not to renew an option on his contract.

Some believe Superintendent Graham knew of the illegal test, and that she should have immediately informed the school board. But Graham says she knew nothing about it until April 14, and kept the board informed about the matter.

The investigation into the superintendent would cost taxpayers $10,000.
