Churchill High allegedly hacked, grades changed
Montgomery County Public Schools are investigating a computer security breach that may have been caused by students hacking into a system to change grades.
The school system is interviewing “several” students at Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, where the security breach took place, according to Dana Tofig, a spokesman for the school system.
“We are investigating an allegation that some students compromised our grading system and may have changed some grades,” Tofig said. “We’re in the process of interviewing students.”
He said that a teacher discovered the problem earlier this week and brought it to the attention of school administration.
“We take the security of student info and data very very seriously,” he said.
