Oops. A school sends all eighth-grade report cards to every family in the grade

Valerie Strauss reports:

Oops. An elementary school in Connecticut accidentally e-mailed the report cards for every eighth-grade student to every eighth-grade family.

Instead of sending a single report card as a secure document to a single family, someone sent all of the student evaluations as an attachment to the entire grade at Cromwell Middle School, according to the Middletown Press. Parents called, and the superintendent of schools in the district, Paula Talty, sent out an e-mail with the explanation that it was “human error,” and she assured everyone that steps had been taken to ensure that student privacy isn’t breached in this way again.
