School Security Breach
A security breach has exposed the personal information of more than 50,000 past and present Naperville area students. Pearson Clinical Assessment recently notified school districts 203 and 204 of the data breach that came from an unauthorized third party. It affected student information from its AIMSweb 1.0 product, which tracks student academic progress for both school districts. Pearson told the districts that the student data affected was limited to first and last names and some rare cases of birth dates. The data was collected from 2001 to 2016. District 203 reports the breach involved approximately 3,700 students enrolled at that time, and 800 staff members’ names and school email addresses. District 204 reports approximately 49,000 students and 2,300 staff members were involved. Pearson has provided no evidence that any data was misused, but have provided a free credit monitoring service from Experian available to any student enrolled between 2001 and 2016. More information about this service is available on both District 203 and 204’s website. Any additional questions can be addressed to Pearson Clinical Assessment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Paint the Wall
Pick up a paintbrush and a palette because the Word of Life Lutheran Church is letting community members paint their masterpiece on a wall just outside their building. Thanks to a grant, the Naperville church was able to put on their “Paint The Wall” event yesterday, which has featured artists of all ages and abilities. As one part of the wall was already filled, a new section was built so even more painters could get creative. The event will go on until Saturday, August 10, after which the church will display the painting inside their building.
National Night Out
The Compass Church knows how to throw a block party! It was National Night Out last night and at least 45 Naperville neighborhoods that participated. The church’s event at the corner of 103rd Street and Route 59 had bounce houses, food trucks, balloon animals, yard games, live music, and members of the Naperville Police Department. It was all in an effort to help create better police-community relations and have fun doing it.
