ATLANTA -- 11Alive News has learned Atlanta Public Schools Chief Human Resources Officer Millicent Few quietly resigned at Monday's school board meeting.

The HR Chief is part of a growing list of high-ranking Atlanta school officials who have resigned or been removed from office after a scathing state report uncovered widespread cheating in the school system.

COMPLETE COVERAGE: CRCT Cheating Investigation

The report does not directly implicate Few in the cheating scandal, but instead accuses her of being part of the cover-up and conspiracy of silence.

The report says when journalists grew suspicious of the enormous gains on standardized tests at certain schools that Few "ordered those under her supervision to illegally destroy and alter public documents."

The goal, the report says, was "to hide evidence of test cheating and misconduct."

The report also alleges that when questioned by state investigators, Few made "false statements," -- an allegation that could cost her more than her career with the school system.
