According to a school district spokesman, two educators resigned or retired on Monday, and two more did so on Tuesday.  Three more walked away on Wednesday.

Teachers and principals named in the state's 800-page investigative report had until the close of business on Wednesday to separate from the district on their own. After that, the firing process will begin.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Education said the agency is watching closely how Atlanta Public Schools handles the cheating scandal.

The federal government could withhold funds from the school district if it is not satisfied with the outcome.
