Sonoma County Teacher Accused Of Helping Students Cheat; Will Resign

FORESTVILLE (CBS/AP) -- A Sonoma County teacher who allegedly gave her students advance copies of questions on a state biology test is on paid administrative leave and will resign at the end of the school year.

Joan Vreeburg, a teacher at El Molino High School in Forestville, has agreed to resign effective June 30, 2012 in exchange for a promise by the district to drop all disciplinary action.

Those details were included in a settlement between Vreeburg and the district that was obtained by The Press Democrat.

Vreeburg was suspended last May after a student told school administrators that most of the questions on the biology portion of the California Standards Test were identical to practice tests she gave.

She did not acknowledge any wrongdoing as part of the settlement.
