Officials Investigate Local High School Cheating Scandal

Six students have been suspended amidst an investigation into an alleged cheating scandal at a high school in San Diego's affluent Rancho Bernardo neighborhood where officials say grades appear to have been changed by computer hackers.

Officials believe someone changed grades and accessed tests at Rancho Bernardo High School when the Poway Unified School District computer system was hacked last week.

The school district said Monday the hacking appears limited to the high school.

Details about how the hacking occurred or how the suspended students were involved was not immediately made public.
