Oh, here’s a pleasant change. After a teacher’s laptop was stolen from her car, the reporter asked the St. Johns County School Board whether any student information on the school computer might have been compromised:
Officials said all school computers are password-protected and their hard drives are encrypted, so no personal information could have been accessed.
The laptop was recovered shortly after the theft, but the main point is that I’m glad to see that the district used encryption to protect student information on teachers’ laptops. I wonder what percent of k-12 districts do that.
