Students allegedly hacked computer, changed grades

Thursday, November 10, 2005

Four teenagers from suburban Oak Lawn have been suspended from school for allegedly hacking into a computer system to change their grades.

A teacher at Oak Lawn High School discovered the scheme two weeks ago. She noticed the grades for one student did not match up with the grades in the school computer system.

Officials later discovered that three juniors and one senior allegedly broke into the district's system and changed their grades. They have been suspended for 10 days.

When the students return to school, they will be stripped of their computer privileges.
