The Mississippi Department of Education has notified Natchez-Adams School District students, parents and guardians that a recent computer theft at Natchez High School may have compromised personal student information.

A news release from the MDE states the theft occurred on May 13, 2021, when the MDE’s Office of Compulsory School Attendance Enforcement experienced a break-in at one of its offices at Natchez High School.

Office equipment, including a computer containing the OCSAE student database from 2014 to 2021, was stolen. The database contained information for approximately 5,300 students who had worked with a school attendance officer.
