WILTON, Conn. -- Wilton High School officials are investigating a rumor of possible cheating on the SAT last month, according to the Wilton Bulletin.

Principal Robert O'Donnell sent a letter to parents explaining that there had been an isolated report of cheating on the test, which was administered on April 5, the Wilton Bulletin reported. A student had contacted the administration last week and reported that another student had cheated off their test, according to the Wilton Bulletin.

There was another rumor that students' scores would be canceled as a result of the alleged cheating, but O'Donnell told parents and students that this rumor was not true, according to the Wilton Bulletin.

O'Donnell told the Wilton Bulletin that school officials were working with the College Board to investigate the cheating allegations, and are interviewing students who may know about it, as well as the proctor in the room in question. If a student was found to be cheating, that student would be handled according to the school's Academic Integrity Policy, O'Donnell told the Wilton Bulletin.
