NEWPORT BEACH (AP) — The Newport-Mesa Unified School District has hired an ethics consultant to work at a high school where some students allegedly hacked into computers and others held a controversial “prom draft.”

 Kevin O’Grady will be paid about $5,000 to meet with students and staff at Corona del Mar High.

O’Grady is director of The Center OC, an advocacy group.
