Around the first of the year, the school district discovered several changes to its student information management system which resulted in unauthorized changes to student grade point averages. While the changes were tracked down and resolved, the unauthorized nature of the changes caused the school administration and board concern, and the school hired a consulting firm to investigate the changes.
During the investigation, other unauthorized activity was uncovered, including unauthorized access and copying of certain employees' emails. The school district has placed an employee on leave and has begun the process of assuring school district data is safe. The school district is working with professional technology assistance to assure its data systems are secure for the future, and has begun the process of notifying those whose data was breached.
