Reasons school may think student misusing computer

My grandson is high functioning autistic and this year his school gave all students computers for class work. Twice his has been taken from him because they are saying he is trying to get past security settings and onto site he is prohibited from going into. He is not beyond trying to get around the rules from time to time. However, he is not savvy enough to be a good liar when he is caught. He insists he hasn't tried to do what he is accused of doing. If lying his anxiety is easy to see and I saw none of the tell-tale signs. I don't see why he would do this anyway, because he has another laptop and an iPad at home without all the restrictions. I am wondering if another student on the same school network could have hacked his system remotely to try ways to get past the system blocks and not get caught? Could there be other reasons for this? I had him write down everywhere he went on the computer. One place he said he went was to Google why his keyboard and mouse wouldn't work because it happened to him shortly after his computer was returned the first time. His computer is touch screen and he said it was working, but not keyboard or mouse. I have heard that is a sign of hacking or a Trojan virus. Any help in this matter would be appreciated. I have to go to the school Monday to discuss this matter and I would like some facts to help level the playing field.
