The New Hartford Central School district is currently trying to discover who is responsible for a hack on their virtual classroom system. Last week a hacker posing as a student entered a health class where they played loud noises across the speakers and posted a pornographic video which all the students in the virtual classroom could see.
The incident sparked outrage among district faculty and parents of Ralph Perry Junior- High School where the hack took place. “It is a major concern for us, using electronic instruction is one of our only methods to get things across. We have to use it in essence based on the guidelines but we also want it safe. We can get the police involved if it’s a police matter. But again we are just beginning our investigation and in the beginning parts of it,” said Andre Paradis, School Principal.
