The American Association of School Administrators said Thursday that they want to "respect the integrity" of the investigation as it moves forward. Hall and other educators could face criminal charges after a state investigation found cheating in nearly half of the district's 100 schools.
Investigators said Hall either knew or should have known about cheating in the district dating back to 2001. Hall's attorney, Richard Deane, has denied the allegations.
Hall was given the award in 2009, partly based on a rapid rise in test scores among the district's poorest schools. Many of those schools are where investigators say cheating occurred.
