SAN DIMAS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have arrested two students accused of hacking into their high school’s computer system to change grades.
The San Dimas High School students, who were not identified, were taken into custody Thursday on charges of unauthorized computer access and fraud.
Principal Michael Kelly says scores for about 120 students were altered. But he tells parents that he’s confident the grades will be restored.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Mark Stevens tells KCBS-TV (https://cbsloc.al/1KKdBBe ) one student was paid $500 in exchange for changing grades.
Deputies were called to the school after a staffer noticed someone had gained access to the school’s computer network through the school’s website.
