Thousands of JCPS students' test scores go to wrong addresses

This from the Courier-Journal:

Test scores for thousands of Jefferson County Public Schools students were delivered to the wrong addresses and the district is urging parents who received an incorrect report in the mail to return it to the sender or destroy it.

The error involved the eighth-grade EXPLORE test, which was administered this fall to all of the district’s eighth graders, said Lauren Roberts, a JCPS spokeswoman.

The district learned about the error late Wednesday, when parents began calling the district to say they had received test scores for a child other than their own.

Roberts said 6,500 to 7,000 student scores may have been involved. “We regret the inconvenience this has caused to parents,” she said.

Can you say "FERPA violation" 7000 times quickly before some parent files?

Wonder if the person who screwed this up will get the same fate as a principal whose scores aren't high enough?

Maybe those folks going to Oldham County, really do live there instead of Jefferson County.

A middle school in Fayette County did the same thing with KCCT results last fall- mailed results to the wrong families. I was suprised that there was no response/attention to this matter. As a parent, I woudl have been outraged.
