EUGENE, Ore. — The 4J School District said someone accessed current and former students’ personal information during a security breach last week. Administrators found out about the breach this weekend and reported it to Eugene Police.
4J staff think the suspect has used a district computer to access data related to the district’s school meals program. That program includes information for all or most current 4J students including names, student ID numbers, addresses, dates of birth, and in some cases phone numbers, Social Security numbers and/or students’ free or reduced-price school lunch status.
The district said it took measures to futher protect students’ personal information by changing passwords, increasing password security and limiting the personal data shared in the school meal system.
