Earlier this month, students from Clark Magnet and Hoover managed to get their hands on the stock cards that the district uses for report cards in order to forge report cards. Because of this, the schools had to reprint the third quarter progress reports onto different blue cards instead of the original green and white and send them out later than scheduled.
“I think if students would spend time studying, they wouldn’t have to spend so much time figuring out how to forge report cards,” Principal Jennifer Earl said.
As for the consequences, the suspected students will have to deal with the law and the district.
“I’m proud of the collaboration between the district and Clark and Hoover in discovering [this], finding out who it was, and isolating it quickly,” Earl said.
The district is investigating the best precautions to be taken in order to prevent this from happening again, especially when grades are to be submitted.
“Even if my grades were bad and I wouldn’t want my parents to know about it, that’s going too far,” Nick Bassirpour (’11) said.
