CRAWFORD, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska officials have decided to suspend a former Crawford teacher’s license for a year because she violated state testing rules last spring.
The state Board of Education unanimously approved the suspension of Ramona Hourt’s certificate Friday.
The Nebraska Professional Practices Commission determined that Hourt violated rules for the state writing test by taking pictures of students’ computer screens, discussing answers with students and making writing suggestions during the test.
Hourt said in a letter to the board that she was encouraging students during the test and didn’t believe she was giving them answers.
Hourt apologized for her actions and resigned from the Crawford school district last year.
