Pearson AimsWeb Data Breach Information

The Hillsboro R-III School District recently learned that one of the District’s vendors experienced a data breach.  This was part of a nation-wide breach that affected school districts across the entire United States.  The data was maintained by Pearson Clinical Assessment.  The District used the Pearson Aimsweb 1.0 reading test at the varying grade levels from Kindergarten to 12th grade to assess reading ability, and Pearson collected some student directory information as part of that assessment.     

Pearson believes the incident occurred on or around November 2018 and is working with law enforcement and cybersecurity experts to determine the full extent of the data security incident.
