Toledo Public Schools Seeking Individuals Who May Not Have Received Notice of Security Breach
As previously reported on this website and in the news media, Toledo Public Schools experienced a security incident in September which later resulted in the potential access, viewing or removal of personal information for some current and former TPS students and employees.
Such personal information may include, but is not necessarily limited to: name, date of birth, Social Security number, and information about one’s employment or academic history. Since that time, TPS has completed its investigation and remediation, which included implementing recommended administrative, technical and physical safeguards to not only protect against a recurrence of such an incident, but to improve the confidentiality, accessibility and integrity of TPS data and systems.
The district has also been analyzing the compromised files and providing written notice to potentially affected individuals via regular mail. Unfortunately, TPS has not been able to identify current mailing addresses for some individuals and is therefore also providing this substitute notice. Any former TPS students or employees who have not received written notice via regular mail can contact TPS at 419-671-0242 to receive additional information and to receive complimentary credit monitoring, if desired.
This notice is published pursuant to Ohio R.C. §1349.19(E)(4).
