Doris Alvarez, principal of the Preuss School UCSD, has resigned after a University of California audit concluded she likely knew or directed staff to change students’ grades.

Instead, Alvarez will advise UCSD’s senior vice chancellor of academic affairs until June 30, 2008, when she will retire.

Preuss School, a high-achieving charter school founded by UCSD faculty, altered students’ grades and gave kids credit for courses they didn’t take, according to the recently released audit. Auditors concluded that Alvarez and the former school counselor likely knew about the changed grades.
