District 833 apologizes for inadvertently sharing student data

On August 16, 2017, the South Washington County School District’s Transportation Department sent an email to the parents of most students in the District. Unfortunately, as a result of an employee error, a document containing both public and private educational data was inadvertently attached to the email. The District apologizes for this error.

The District has commenced an investigation into this matter. At this point, we know the disclosure was the result of an inadvertent employee error. We are now looking at what led to the error so we can take steps to prevent similar errors from occurring in the future. As the District staff works to determine the best way to address the current situation, we request that parents delete the attachment and refrain from forwarding it.

Parents who have questions or concerns about the data that were released on their child should contact Transportation Department at (651) 425-5303.
