A high-flying charter school accused of fudging grades hasn’t gotten a verdict back yet from University of California auditors, though the results were expected back this month.

Earlier this month, Preuss School board member Gary Matthews estimated that auditors would report back to the school in late October. The school, nationally recognized for turning out highly-educated minority students, is accused of changing about 100 grades, some from failing to passing, and giving students credit for courses they didn’t take.

School officials, fending off the charges, have said that racism fuels criticism of Preuss.

The lagging audit raises anxiety for parents, students, and staff, who fear the charges could darken the school’s reputation.
