ROCHELLE, Ill. (WTVO) — Personal information about students and teachers of the Rochelle Elementary School District were exposed in a hacker attack, the school district announced on Friday.
Officials say they became aware in mid-March that hackers had gained access to their AIMSweb testing platform in November of 2018. Rochelle’s school is one of many districts in Illinois involved in the breach.
Student first names, last names, and dates of birth, as well as teachers’ names and email addresses were accessed by unknown parties, according to Pearson Clinical Assessment, who made the AIMSweb program.
Pearson is working with law enforcement on the crime.
If a parent/guardian has questions about personal information, contact Pearson at 866-883-3309 or email email@example.com. Please note that Pearson is offering free credit monitoring services from Experian.
