Shabazz Academy Posts K-5 Student Addresses Online

LANSING, Michigan. In late December, 2007 the Liberty Coalition discovered an excel file with the names, addresses, phone numbers, and emergency contact information for 125 students, parents, and others for Shabazz Public School Academy on their website. 69 of those affected are Pre-K through fifth grade students. Though no social security numbers or credit card numbers were exposed, some parents may be legitimately alarmed at the release of contact information for their young children.

The file was created on October 9, 2006. The school acted quickly to delete the file from their server and notify parents, but the file remained available through search engine caches until late February, 2008.

Individuals affected by this exposure should immediately visit and search for their names, to confirm what types of personal information were exposed.
