MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT DR. KELVIN ADAMS
April 20, 2017
Saint Louis Public Schools was recently notified that one of our vendor companies, Schoolzilla PBC, experienced an information security incident earlier this month that affected many of their customers, including our district. Schoolzilla immediately fixed the issue and informed us. We have no reason to believe that the incident will impact students or their information, and you do not need to take any action.
The information included basic student information but did NOT include social security numbers (SSNs). In keeping with FERPA guidelines, the District does not maintain student SSNs.
We want to assure you that we are taking this incident very seriously and have put measures in place to limit the type of data shared with such vendors in the future.
If you have further questions, contact Colette Owens, Director of Academic Strategy and Special Projects at SLPS: firstname.lastname@example.org or 314-345-4570, visit schoolzilla.com/blog or reach out directly to the Schoolzilla team at email@example.com.
Dr. Kelvin R. Adams
