Update: eduCLIMBER

Paula Sandahl

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Per legislation, we are required to notify parents of any educational resources used within the district that have had data breaches.  As such, we are writing to inform you that one of our vendors experienced a data breach of an application which houses student data for Coventry Public Schools.  Illuminate Education is an education company that provides applications and technology support to school districts, including eduCLIMBER which is used in our district.  We were recently notified of an incident that may affect the security of some of your child's information.  According to Illuminate Education, affected databases included names along with demographic and academic related information for some current and former students.  We have been told there is no evidence that any information was subject to actual or attempted misuse.  

Coventry Public Schools is working in partnership with Illuminate Education to help support affected families with this incident.  Affected families will be receiving a mailing from Illuminate Education offering those children complimentary access to 12 months of identity monitoring services through IDX.  The letters will contain information on how to enroll if you elect to do so, along with additional information regarding data privacy.

Coventry Public Schools treats the privacy of our students with the utmost priority.  You will be notified immediately if there are any changes to this situation.

Thank you,

Coventry Public Schools
