Six more indicted Atlanta Public Schools educators have pleaded guilty to their involvement in a standardized test-cheating conspiracy.

Former Parks Middle School Teacher, Starlette Mitchell, admitted to changing incorrect answers on tests between 2007 and 2009.

Former Venetian Hills Elementary principal, Clarietta Davis, pleaded guilty to making false statements.

Ex-Parks Middle School teacher Kimberly Oden pleaded guilty to obstruction.

Former Dobbs Elementary teacher Derrick Broadwater, ex-Kennedy Middle School secretary, Carol Dennis, and former Dunbar Elementary teacher Gloria Ivey have also pleaded guilty.

Thirty-five educators were indicted in the cheating scandal.
