A Pennsylvania mother was arrested for illegally entering a school computer system. Her alleged actions, for which she now faces six felony charges, include adjusting her kids’ grades. According to The Morning Call, authorities say the Weisenberg Township mother used her knowledge of the Northwestern Lehigh School District’s computer system to fudge her kids’ grades. Police say the woman is a former employee of the school district, having left to pursue another job opportunity in April 2011. It is said she had intimate knowledge of its systems, and was also privy to the superintendent’s password, both of which she is accused of using to access the school’s information systems.
