NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The Newport-Mesa Unified School District has hired an ethics consultant to work at a high school where some students allegedly hacked into computers and others held a controversial “prom draft.”

The Orange County Register reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/1hTJoq3 ) that Kevin O’Grady will be paid about $5,000 to meet with students and staff at Corona del Mar High.

O’Grady is director of The Center OC, an advocacy group.

Officials hope he will help restore the school’s reputation after a year of controversy.

Eleven students were suspected of hacking into computers to change grades with the help of a private tutor.

Then last month the school made headlines after officials cracked down on a “prom draft” that involved male students ranking female students and then selecting a date from the favored pool.
