Data Breach

On Feb. 10 an unknown and unauthorized individual illegally acquired the personal and financial information of our employees that is contained on the Federal W-2 Tax Form through a phishing attempt, including name, address, social security number, earnings, and school tax ID information. No bank account information was obtained. As required by law, the appropriate government agencies have been notified.

We believe this information may have been obtained with the intent to file fraudulent tax returns. Please note that the district has insurance that provides coverage for certain related expenses. We have also contracted with IdentifyForce to provide one (1) year of personal security protection for all employees. A letter was sent out on Monday, Feb. 13 to all individuals affected. The letter explains the services offered and how to sign up.

If your address has changed since you received a 2016 W2, you should update your information in the Hub. Call HR with any questions. 

In the interim, employees should take any precautions they deem appropriate to protect personal and financial interests. 

We apologize for this inconvenience and are taking further steps to protect district data and information. Please see our FAQs and informational presentation for more information, as well as additional resources listed below.

Update October 2017: The District will be extending the Identify Force coverage for an additional three years.  More information will be available on this process in February 2018.  All employees who were affected by the data breach and leave district employment should be sure to maintain a current mailing address with Bloomington Public Schools.  Information will be mailed to employees home address on how to continue the coverage.
