BALTIMORE (AP) — The principal of Baltimore’s Western High School says the public school made a mistake and didn’t send some required materials to colleges for students. 

Principal Alisha Trusty said in a letter Friday afternoon that she learned that some college admissions materials required from the all-girls public school including transcripts, school profiles, and recommendations were not received by all the colleges where students applied. 

Trusty wrote in her letter that it was unclear how many of the senior class’ some 187 students were affected. She said the school is investigating the cause of the oversights and will reach out to colleges that did not get complete application materials.
