Gunn and Palo Alto high schools are reviewing changes in transcripts for all members of the class of 2014 after a Paly student was found to have gained online access to alter a transcript, the Palo Alto school district said Thursday.
The student gained access by using a staff member's password.
"There was an issue at Paly involving an individual student gaining access to their own transcript and making changes," the district said in a statement responding to an inquiry.
The district said it took "appropriate action" in imposing consequence to the student, "including notification to the appropriate educational institutions."
While a "complete investigation" is ongoing, "at this time, no evidence has been found that other students are involved," the district said. "If future issues are found, staff will inform colleges as needed."
The statement also said the district's information system "was not breached and remains secure."
District Communications Coordinator Tabitha Kappeler-Hurley said community members with further concerns may contact her at 650-329-3746.
