The Los Angeles school district is reviewing every senior's transcript in the wake of computer problems that have messed up class schedules for some or produced faulty transcripts needed for college.

While it's unclear how many students were affected, nearly 38,000 seniors will have their transcripts examined. The district temporarily hired as many as 50 former counselors and administrators to help check the records, at an estimated cost of up to $25,000 a day.

Errors with the student-information system meant some students repeated courses or were unable to get classes they needed, and some college transcripts were faulty or weren't available to students at all.
