RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Students and parents at a Richmond elementary school where "potential irregularities" have been uncovered in the administration of state accountability tests are waiting to learn more about the problems and when test retakes will take place.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports details about what transpired at George W. Carver Elementary remained unclear Wednesday.

Richmond Public Schools Superintendent Jason Kamras informed the school community of the problems late Tuesday, though a spokeswoman has declined to say how widespread the problems are or how far back they extend.

Spokeswoman Kenita Bowers says a retesting schedule will be shared by the end of the week. Less than two weeks remain in the school year.

The state education department says Carver is the only school in Virginia being investigated for testing irregularities.
