Poway Unified School District headquarters.

A public records request led to a breach in data of more than 30,000 students in the Poway Unified School District.

A parent apparently asked for records and the district mistakenly released the personal information of thousands of students that contained, “children’s names, nicknames, addresses, phone numbers, hearing and vision exam results, dates of birth, language fluency, academic test results and occupation of parents,” according to a San Diego Union-Tribune article.

The data breach was reported to the District Attorney’s Office earlier this month, according to the article.
