STRASBURG, Ohio-- The superintendent of a Tuscarawas County school district is under fire for allegedly changing students' grades.

Teachers are accusing Strasburg-Franklin Local School District Superintendent Cindy Brown of ordering them to change grades in order to create the illusion of inflated student performance.

The president of the teachers' union Shawn Miller said he will submit a resolution at Wednesday night's meeting of the school board, demanding an investigation into potentially illegal behavior. He's also asking Brown be put on administrative leave.

Miller said when a high school teacher refused to cooperate with the alleged grade rigging scheme, Brown changed the grades with the help of other district employees.

The Strasburg Education Association is asking for her resignation, if any evidence of illegal behavior is found.

Attempts to reach Brown on Tuesday were unsuccessful.

Schools were closed for snow.
