Louisiana is ordering a comprehensive review of the records of recent East Baton Rouge Parish public high school graduates after a limited audit found that some students earned grades or credits that differed from those the school system reported to the state.

The audit, made public last week, also looks at whether some students listed as transferring elsewhere should be considered dropouts, and probes deeply into a case, which sparked the audit, where a student was allowed to graduate despite lacking the necessary credits.

State schools chief John White said the mismatch between teacher grades and those reported to the Louisiana education department could be inadvertent errors, or in a small number of cases, intentional fraud by principals and other school leaders.
