Rome School District has had a data breach, according to a letter sent to parents. District Superintendent Peter Blake claims that several districts were affected by the data breach. In the letter, parents were notified that the breach affected students from the 2013-2014 school year, and that student information accessed during the breach included student names, birthdates, school information, and district attendance. Hackers breached 3rd party vendor, Pearson Education Inc., which provided Rome District with a student assessment tool (AIMSweb 1.0), which Superintendent Blake says the district no longer uses. Anyone with concerns about their child's information is advised to call their local school district.
