A former Atlanta public schools administrator may find out Monday if she will remain as superintendent of a Texas school district.

Kathy Augustine was recently given a paid leave of absence from her new position as the DeSoto, Texas, school superintendent while trustees re-examine her previous administrative post in the Atlanta system.

The Atlanta school system is embroiled in widespread allegations of cheating on standardized tests.

Augustine, who was accused of misrepresenting test scores and giving false information to state officials in Georgia, says that she was "neither involved in, nor aware of that kind of behavior."

DeSoto schools hired Augustine in April to the $188,000-a-year job in the district, which has some 9,000 students in the Dallas area.
