PA: Police: School data hacked, grades altered

Pottsville police anticipate filing charges against one or more computer hackers who unlawfully made changes to an online grading system used by Pottsville Area School District.

“You had some people who hacked into a school-functioned, online site and found ways to change data that was put in there,” Pottsville police Capt. Ronald J. Moser said Wednesday

“In this case, someone figured out a teacher’s login and password. It is still a federal offense,” said Monica Langenberg, Shawnee, Okla., director of business development for is an online classroom assessment and instructional management system the school district pays to use, according to Langenberg and Pottsville Area Superintendent James T. Gallagher.
