NEW YORK (AP) - Education officials say 70 students from New York City's most selective public school will lose privileges for cheating on a state Regents exam.
City Department of Education spokeswoman Erin Hughes says the mid-June incident at Stuyvesant High School involved a student who photographed the Spanish exam and texted it to 69 other students.
The student who sent the texts faces suspension.
They'll all be banned from some student groups and lose privileges such as having lunch off campus.
All of them will be allowed to retake the test.
A 71st student is facing suspension for cheating on another test by passing notes.
Students in New York state must pass tests in at least five subjects for a Regents diploma.
