KY: Bullitt school employees’ Social Security numbers mistakenly released

Sara Cunningham reports:

A Bullitt County Public Schools employee accidentally sent an e-mail message to about 1,800 school district workers Tuesday that included the names and Social Security numbers of 676 district employees.

[…]

The employee did not mean to include Social Security numbers, Davis said. The original message was sent at 7:47 a.m. Tuesday. The employee realized the mistake and recalled the message at 7:59 a.m.

The district’s technology department made sure the messages were removed from e-mail accounts, Davis said.

School board attorney Eric Farris said the district sent letter to all affected employees Tuesday afternoon to notify them of the mistake.
