The first three of the 35 educators indicted in the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal turned themselves in to authorities early Tuesday.

Tameka Goodson, a school improvement specialist at Kennedy Middle School, turned herself in around 12:30 a.m. and was booked into the Fulton County Jail on $200,000 bond, according to jail records. Goodson is charged with racketeering and false statements and writings.

The indictment, handed up by a grand jury Friday, accuses Goodson of working with her school’s principal and secretary to change students’ wrong answers to right answers on standardized tests.

Just before 6 a.m. on Tuesday, Donald Bullock, a testing coordinator at Usher-Collier Heights Elementary, arrived at the jail, accompanied by his attorney.
