Roanoke City Schools sold computers with employees personal information

The Roanoke City School Superintendent told the districts more than 2000 employees that their personal information may have been compromised.

Rita Bishop said today that eight computers the district sold second-hand still had their hard dives intact.

Those hard drives were supposed to be removed before the computers were sold.

This potential compromise of personal information including names and social security numbers involves only those who were employed by the district in November of 2006.

The School board believes they have reacquired those eight computers but is unsure at this point if the data on those hard drives was compromised.


There’s nothing on the district’s web site at this time about the incident to indicate when the drives were sold, who purchased them, and how and when the district discovered the problem.
