Investigating the administration’s decision to disable eSchoolPlusPlus on school servers

It was the first week of the school year at WHS. Most students were settling back into the day-to-day routine of school and complaining to their friends about the waning of summer. Senior Tyler Brient, however, was focused on a different problem: the new eSchoolPLUS student information system. His friends were complaining of scheduling problems and the lack of a friendly user interface. So, on one sunny Sunday afternoon, Brient sat down to begin coding what would become his flagship development: eSchoolPlusPlus.

Yet a little over one month later, eSchoolPlusPlus was blocked on WHS servers. WSPN explored why the website was blocked, how the blocking happened and what the future has in store for the website.
