High School Students Arrested For Hacking Teachers Computer


Four students at Dickinson High School in Jersey City figured out how to hack into the school's online grading system and changed their grades from failing to passing, school officials said.

All four students at Dickinson High School were arrested by Jersey City police. School administration at Dickinson first became aware of grade changing last June when they flagged a few grades that had been changed from failing to passing. Police were notified of the incident shortly afterward.

The Jersey City school IT department worked with Jersey City police to track usage of the system to figure out who was changing the grades. The school says the grades of as many as 10 students were changed.
