Notice: Pearson Clinical Assessment Data Breach

We were recently made aware that an unauthorized third party gained access to electronically stored student data. The student data was stored in a system maintained by a District vendor, Pearson Clinical Assessment. Initial information indicates that the impacted student data is limited to first and last name, and date of birth. Our district was not the only area school district affected. 

Upon notification, we took immediate steps to identify the impacted students, and are taking additional steps to confirm the scope of the data obtained. The Holden R-3 School District takes the protection of student information seriously, and it working diligently to gain additional information so that it may properly notify impacted students. Although initial information does not suggest that the student data has been misused in any manner, Pearson Clinical Assessment is offering complimentary credit monitoring services to impacted students. If you are interested in learning more about this option, please call 866-883-3309 or email aimsweb1request@pearson.com. We will continue to share information as it becomes available.
