John P. Martin reports:

One investigation into the Lower Merion School District’s laptop fiasco is done.

But as the district tries to move on, another probe churns.

Lawyers for the district, some Lower Merion parents, and the Harriton High School sophomore whose lawsuit spotlighted the school system’s use of Web-camera monitoring said Wednesday that they wouldn’t try to block federal agents from poring over thousands of images secretly captured from students’ computers.

The development came as a federal judge prepared to permanently bar the district from using Web-cam monitoring and as Superintendent Christopher McGinley announced plans to meet with students, overhaul technology policies, and take other steps to repair the district’s tattered image.
