Teachers at Corona Del Mar High School are asking school board members to uphold the expulsion

Five students at the school were expelled after a

hacking scheme was uncovered. Students say Timothy Lai, a private tutor from Irvine, told the students how to use key logging devices on teacher’s computers to gain access to sensitive information such as test answers and grades.

The students were expelled with no hearing after making a deal with the school board. However, now some of the students’ attorneys are saying the expulsion agreement was illegal and that school officials got information from the students using force or fraud.

The school says that the students missed the window to appeal the punishments, and that the agreements will be upheld as is.
