VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – The Mainland High School principal will be reprimanded after giving some hundreds of students a previous year’s AP test, according to the school board.

An investigation concluded the principal of Mainland High School told teachers not to tell nearly 340 students they were taking tests that would not count for possible college credit. Fewer than 90 students from the AP seminar class took the real test, according to the Department of Education’s investigation.

Students didn’t know whether they were affected until July 5 when scores were posted online.
