    I mean this must be a inside job?? How do they know where to go? Also the school principals, teachers, should be held accountable on how they secure theses computers??? This happens all too often at our schools where there’s break-ins after break-ins?

      Agree. Has to be inside job as how would they know to target one particular classroom? DOE employee or maybe even a parent when then have open house might have given the info to their criminal friends. Agree all DOE schools need to lock down their computer equipment, especially laptop and notebooks that are so portable that they can be put in a gun type safe that is securely bolted to the floor with a hidden camera system that is turned on after school hours. No money? For a $800 or so safe, that is way cheaper than having to replace 27 Chromebooks which are not that expensive however that one Mac Pro laptop, especially if it is with the new Retina display, could easily cost from $1,300 to over $3,000.

      Kids who are excited about their new equipment say things to people, who say things to other people and so on. Somewhere along that line there’s going to be a scumbag. It’s inevitable. I hope it wasn’t a parent.
