SUSPICIOUS TEST SCORES

Three Clark County School District employees have been placed on leave after a state investigation concluded adults had altered standardized test answer sheets at a Las Vegas elementary school.
A school district spokeswoman says Principal Patricia Harris, Assistant Principal Steven Niemeier and Associate Superintendent Andre Denson have been placed on leave. They couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
The state started investigating after the low-performing school submitted scores showing dramatic improvement from one year to the next.
An analysis of erasure marks found a suspiciously high number of wrong answers had been corrected.
