ATLANTA (AP) — All but one of the former Atlanta schools educators indicted last week have surrendered to authorities.

A sheriff’s spokeswoman said former D.H. Stanton Elementary School principal Willie Davenport was the only one of the 35 people named in the indictment who hadn’t reported to the Fulton County jail by midday Wednesday. Prosecutors had set a Tuesday deadline for the educators to surrender.

The indictment alleges a broad conspiracy to cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistleblowers in an effort to bolster student test scores and, as a result, receive bonuses for improved student performance.

Former Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Beverly Hall was released just before 11 p.m. Tuesday after posting $200,000 bond.

Hall and 34 subordinates were indicted Friday in the test cheating scandal that rocked Atlanta Public Schools.
