Governor Nathan Deal has signed into law House Bill 692, which revokes any salary increase or bonuses for Georgia teachers who personally falsified or caused falsification of students' standardized tests.

Under the current policy, Georgia teachers and principals can receive bonuses based on their student’s standardized test scores. Under the new law, educators who are caught cheating or misrepresenting their student’s test scores would have to give up any bonuses or incentive-based payments. The new law will go into effect July 1, 2012.

For a complete look at HB 692, visit the Georgia General Assembly.
