Did hackers take the technology out of the Hudson County Schools of Technology?

Oh, the irony.

Classes at the Hudson County Schools of Technology Secaucus and Jersey City campuses were cut short and all after-school activities were canceled Monday because the district’s internal computer servers were knocked offline.

District officials, who did not respond for comment immediately, would not say if the disruption was the work of hackers and did not say if the schedule for the rest of the week at County Prep and Explore Middle School in Jersey City and High Tech in Secaucus would be affected.

Just last week a school district in Gloucester County was shut down for three days because of “an unauthorized third party.” Monroe Township school district officials would not say if the shutdown was caused by a cyberattack. Three years ago Stevens Institute of Technology was victimized.

“Please be advised that currently all HCST internal servers are down,” district officials said in an email to students and parents. “This outage affects the internet and wireless.”

The district operated on a half-day schedule Monday, while the website, “Powerdesk” and Tech Helpdesk were all down. The GED/Diploma Adult program was also canceled Monday.
