  A California high school senior was arrested May 13, 2015 for allegedly changing grades for 32 students using school computers.

   Juan Ambriz, 18, is facing a felony charge in the grade-changing scandal at Dixon High School in Dixon.

   The district superintendent said the student had been changing grades since January and cooperated with administrators after they confronted him with the evidence last week.

   The teen was arrested on campus by Dixon police and was later released from the Solano County Jail on $15,000 bail.

   Ambriz has made at least 200 fraudulent grade changes, authorities said. Oddly enough, some of the students whose grades were changed were unaware of the scheme, meaning some of those who benefitted will face no punishment at all. Students with changed grades were being interviewed.

   One senior told local reporters that Ambriz had plans to attend a major university in the fall. “I don’t know why somebody would do this,” the senior said. “I don’t think he knew the consequences that would come to him if he did this.”
