Attendance scam hits Berkeley High School

Kids are learning fast. Dozens of students at Berkeley High School are facing suspension or expulsion after school officials say they got into a computer system and changed their attendance records. These kids have a good career prospectus in politics.

Principal Pasquale Scuderi said Wednesday that 50 students will be suspended and two or three expelled. The scam apparently occurred after some students were able to obtain an administrative password to the system, which was then sold to other students.

The changes to students’ attendance records occurred between October and January and meant students could skip classes or school altogether without their parents knowing.

Scuderi said administrators discovered the scam just before spring break on April 2. They then went through the school’s 3,200 students to determine who was involved.
