LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles school district has imposed a hiring freeze as it pays to fix a system-wide computer problem that has messed up class schedules for many seniors or produced faulty transcripts needed for college.

Superintendent Ramon Cortines tells the Daily News (https://bit.ly/1xewgOP ) that the costs of paying overtime to educators and temporary workers to review tens of thousands of records prompted him to institute the freeze.

Educators inside the nation’s second-largest school district worked weekends and nights trying to enroll students, create class schedules and fix transcripts left in disarray.

The newspaper says the $29 million price tag of the so-called My Integrated Student Information System could double as a result of the problems.
