This is (One of Many Reasons) Why Districts Get Hit with Ransomware

Bill Fitzgerald writes:

Even the smallest of school districts are complicated places. Communicating with stakeholders is hard to do well, and getting the details right is imperative. The details become even more important when school boards and superintendents try and communicate about school safety issues.

When communication is done well, is not rushed, and goes above and beyond to be inclusive, the process of addressing complex issues can build cohesion within a district. When communications are rushed, imprecise, and technically unsound, it can cause difficult situations to get harder. Good communication requires humility and openness.

To start, I want to highlight that everything in this email has been reported or brought to the attention of people who can do something about it. Nothing in this post is news, or undisclosed.
