The breach was reported to the state on March 31, but the district indicated that the breach, which involved addresses and Social Security numbers, did not result in any notification to consumers. There is no indication whether the individuals were employees or students, or both, or why the district decided notification was not required.  The District has not responded to a contact form inquiry sent to it this morning.
