SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Almost one year after an AP testing scandal at Scripps Ranch High School -- students and parents still aren't happy. 

Gloria Tran sued the San Diego Unified School District and won.

"The judge sided with us and found them liable," said Tran.

Her son was one of more than 500 students whose AP tests were invalidated at Scripps Ranch High School last year. 


The College Board found more than 900 tests weren't administered properly. 

"The tables were too close to each other, the students were too close to each other," said Tran.

She says she wasn't the only parent to sue. Claims ranged from lost wages for summer jobs to extra tutors and canceled vacations. 

"There were still comments," said Tran. "That's great, it was a moral victory but I'm still mad and this is almost a year later."

She didn't want to reveal how much her claim was for, but she still hasn't gotten paid. 

"I'm hoping there's no problem with the payment but who knows with this district," said Tran.

At the time of the tests, Ann Menna was principal before taking early retirement. San Diego Unified says she came back this year to substitute for a vice principal in the district. 

"From the statements given to me, I was led to believe that at least some personnel matters would be dealt with that would not bring her back," said Tran.

A move she doesn't think is fair. 

"It solidified for me the feeling that no one was held accountable for this AP fiasco," said Tran.
