Schools like Fayetteville-Manlius are reviewing their online security after a data breach left the personal information of students vulnerable.
The school said there was a data security incident last November involving Pearson, which is a provider that F-M and other schools use for student assessment.
Students’ first and last names, dates of birth and email addresses could have been accessed.
F-M says they're now working with Pearson to identify which students are affected and which school years.
They're also reviewing their data security protocol.
Pearson is offering complimentary credit monitoring for one year for affected individuals as a precaution but they say there is no evidence that the information has been misused.
