2 Colleton educators suspended for changing student records

Posted: Updated:

COLLETON COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) – Two Colleton County educators had their teaching licenses suspended this week for one year.

According to State Board of Education filings, Leslie Stephens and Vennie Mitchell have been suspended until April 8, 2015. Stephens is a guidance counselor at Colleton County High School. Mitchell is the director of the Colleton County Alternative School and Pro 9 program.

Investigators found that during the 2011-2012 school year, Stephens made inappropriate modifications to students records in the district without authority or consent of her supervisors.

The Department of Education sent Stephens a letter in February telling her she was going to be suspended for her actions.

The filing states Stephens waived her right to a hearing in the matter.

Mitchell was suspended for also changing student records during the same year. She was also suspended for one year and has the opportunity to be reinstated in 2015.

Both teachers will have to meet all certification requirements again if they want their licenses reinstated.

Mitchell has been a teacher for 32 years; Stephens taught for 10 years.
