CA: 356 Oakmont High School students’ transcripts stolen from counselor’s car

KCRA reports that identity information of 356 Oakmont High School students and their parents was stolen when student transcripts were stolen from a guidance counselor’s car.

The unnamed counselor had taken the transcripts home with her to work last month, and the transcripts belonged to students with last names beginning with P through Ta.

KCRA reports that the transcripts contained the student’s names, birthdays, their parents’ names, phone numbers, grades and addresses. No Social Security numbers were listed.

So here’s the thing: the counselor allegedly didn’t break any policies by taking the records home with her.  But she reportedly left them in her car while she was visiting her father in San Francisco.  Was leaving records in an unattended car  a violation of any policy? And if there was no policy, why wasn’t there one?




KCRA reports:

Hasty would not say whether or not the counselor faced any disciplinary action, calling the matter a “personnel issue.”
