New Jersey High School's Computer System Hacked, Grades Changed

Senior prank gone wrong? Law officials are currently investigating a hacking incident at New Jersey's Orange High School where students' grades and attendence records were reportedly changed. 

At least 30 students were suspended after the grades were changed, according to NJ.com. Many of those suspended said they were innocent. 

Students expressed frustration that their classmates were suspended so close to the end of school, said the article. Students said they received little information about what has happened and relied on the media for that information.

The district will continue to investigate.
