from the school's website of Evansville, Indiana

"... The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation recently experienced a
hardware malfunction with its AS400 computer server resulting in a loss of
student grades...

" Following scheduled maintenance on March 27, 2008, disk errors occurred.
After working with IBM engineers around the clock to mitigate data loss,
the
engineers determined that due to an unfortunate and very rare combination
of
hardware problems and backup configuration settings, all student grade book
assignment data for the current grading period is no longer in the
system. Harrison, North and Bosse High Schools and Harwood Middle School -
all on the six-week grading period - lost four weeks of individual
assignment grades that had been posted."
