Students at Corona Del Mar High School could still face expulsion for hacking into a series of computers to access tests and change grades. Newport-Mesa Unified School District has moved away from a zero-tolerance discipline policy in support of restorative justice.
The victim focused process aims to encourage dialog between the students being disciplined and the person who has been wronged. Newport-Mesa Unified says it may not use this discipline model for the computer hacking case.
