Former Miami-Dade Students Suing School Board Over Publishing Of Private Info

CBS Miami reports:

Two former Miami-Dade school students claim the Miami-Dade County School Board was reckless and negligent for publishing students’ private information on the Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) website.

The students said a simple internet search of their names brings up all sorts of private info.

Information such as social security number, developmental scale score, whether they passed or failed the FCAT, achievement levels and other test scores.

“A lot of times I couldn’t sleep good. I was really nervous,” one student said. “My mom was telling me it’s such a big deal.”

Their attorneys claim information from 522 other student from American Senior High School had been public since 2013 and there may be more.
