The District of Columbia's inspector general has found that cheating on standardized tests occurred at one school in 2010 but has found no evidence of widespread cheating across the school system, according to the Associated Press.
The inspector general's report found at least one teacher at Noyes Education Campus coached students toward correct answers on tests. But there was "insufficient basis" to warrant investigating other schools as thoroughly as Noyes, Inspector General Charles Willoughby wrote.
Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson hopes the report will put to rest suspicions of cheating, she said in a statement.
The inspector general's investigation began after USA Today reported unusually high numbers of erasures from wrong to right answers at more than 100 district schools. The federal Department of Education is also investigating.
Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the 21st Century Cures Act in a rare bi-partisan effort. The bill is meant to speed the development of lifesaving treatments, but critics warn it may also allow ineffective or even harmful drugs onto the market.
