The school has further requested the students’ parents to educate their children about the importance of securing their passwords.
“This data breach was a mistake made by an adult staff member; however, it is helpful to discuss online privacy with your children. Passwords should be kept confidential. In SFUSD, each student is assigned a unique, default password that only the student, you, and their teacher should be able to access,” the security notice read.
