HOUSTON --   Houston Independent School District says an internal audit revealed a high school principal did order staff to change the grades of dozens of failing students.

The audit released yesterday reveals that Westbury High School's principal ordered staff to change 26 failing students' grades to an 80.

The students were in a class being taught by a substitute teacher and he supposedly didn't want students to be penalized for not having a certified teacher.

The district is forwarding the matter to its police department to determine whether any crimes were committed.
