RPS outage main focus at Tuesday’s school board meeting

Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — The ransomware attack was a topic of conversation at last night’s school board meeting.

Superintendent Dr. Ehren Jarrett was on hand to address the issue.

Jarrett stated that the investigation is still ongoing, however, he did deliver a lot of praise for the district’s staff and teachers who have to deal with the fallout.

“It’s really disappointing that an outside entity would target a public school system right at the beginning of the school year when we’re trying to get things started with teaching and learning,” Jarrett said. “Fortunately, our faculty and staff are going to do whatever it takes to make sure our students still have really high quality learning environments.”

All schools and offices will remain open during the outage.
