Computer bug eats students’ grades

April 2, 2008


— A computer malfunction wiped out a month's worth of grades at three high schools and one middle school in Evansville, giving struggling students a second chance but dismaying others.

The Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corp. announced on its Web site that the malfunction occurred during spring break.

Students at Harrison High had mixed reactions, depending on how the second semester was going for them, senior Ibrahim Dughaish said Monday. "Some are really upset because they worked hard for five weeks," but others saw it as a reprieve, he said.

Upcoming report cards at the four schools will not be issued as scheduled. Instead, the final two weeks of the current six-week period will be combined with the final six weeks of the year into an eight- week reporting period.

I wonder if they teach about backups in their computer courses at Harrison High?
