Teacher accused of inflating grades pleads guilty

ANTIOCH, Ill. (AP) -- A former Chicago-area teacher accused of inflating grades for dozens of students, most of them football players, has pleaded guilty to computer tampering.

   Twenty-seventy-year-old Sara Glashagel of Elk Grove Village has been sentenced to 12 months of probation and has to serve 80 hours of public service.

   Her husband is the head football coach at Antioch Community High School.

   She's been ordered not to have contact with the school, but she can attend football events. She was a special education teacher.

   Police allege she used an administrative password to inflate grades for 64 students, 41 of them football players.  The grades were first changed Sept. 15.

   The Illinois High School Association says a preliminary investigation shows that no ineligible players participated in any games because of the allegedly changed grades.
