TX: DA’s office probing San Benito Consolidated School District security breach
While the investigation into the Karakurt attack on the San Benito school district continues, there’s another aspect to the story. Fernando Del Valle reports:
On Wednesday, attorney John Shergold said district Superintendent Theresa Servellon suspended Todd English, the district’s technology director, for reporting the security breach to her and district Police Chief Juan Sosa on Nov. 3.
English, who discovered the breach on Nov. 1, also contacted the FBI, Shergold said.
Shergold said Servellon placed English on paid administrative leave on Nov. 15.
On Nov. 18, English filed a grievance which led to a Dec. 9 district hearing whose findings are pending, Shergold said.
“He claims he was retaliated against for reporting the security breach,” he said. “Todd’s concern is to protect the security information of all students involved, the parents and the employees of the school district. That’s why he went to law enforcement.”
