A sneaky computer virus brought the entire Belgrade School District computer system to its knees last week, leaving technology professionals no choice but to rebuild the operating system from the ground up, school officials said Monday. As of Monday, the information technology staff had logged 35 hours of overtime since Thursday, working into the wee hours of the mornings to correct the problem, IT director Jeff West said. The fix still is not in, but should be in the coming days. The particular virus causing the problem was able to “get in underneath” the system’s safety net and wreak havoc on the district’s 1,300 computers, West said.
