Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- The Rochester Public Schools District (RPS) is continuing to deal with fallout stemming from a presumed cyber attack.
Earlier this month, the district’s technology staff shutdown the district’s connection after noticing what’s described as “irregular activity” on its network. District leaders later acknowledged that experts determined an "outside actor" gained access to some school district data, however RPS says there’s no evidence at this point that the affected data involving Rochester Public Schools employees has been used for financial fraud or identity theft.
RPS leaders announced Monday that the district will not conduct Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments testing. The testing was set to take place this month and was initially pushed back in the wake of the presumed cyber attack.
