The former testing coordinator for Toomer Elementary School fought to keep his position with Atlanta Public Schools Tuesday.
Hezekiah Wardlow was responsible for overseeing CRCT administration during the spring 2009 period for Toomer Elementary.
He worked under principal Tonya Saunders at the relatively small school.
Saunders was also accused of allowing cheating to occur and a tribunal upheld APS superintendent Erroll Davis' recommendation not to reinstate her last week.
A report from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement found a large number of students' answers that were corrected, which experts had previously testified seemed too statistically improbable to have occurred without some sort of cheating.
Wardlow's attorney hoped his client's fate would be different.
But deputy superintendent Karen Waldon already testified Tuesday that the district is not in support of Wardlow returning.
"The district has lost all confidence in Mr. Wardlow to serve as a testing coordinator," Waldon said.
Georgia's Professional Standards Commission has recommended to revoke Wardlow's teaching license. Waldon said allowing him to come back into a school if his license is revoked would undermine the integrity of the district.
