Detroit-Area District Cancels Classes Due to Cyber Incident

“Allen Park Public Schools in Michigan shut down portions of its network and canceled classes Monday after discovering a cybersecurity threat.“

“John Tafelski, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction, sent a letter to members of the school community on Sunday stating that the school district recently discovered a cybersecurity incident that affected some of its systems. “

“"This incident required us to shut down portions of our network as we work to fix the issue," Tafelski said. "Upon learning of this issue, we immediately engaged independent third-party cybersecurity professionals to assist in our review and remediation efforts, but it may be a few days before full functionality can be restored." “

“On the positive side, Tafelski said that most of the data and systems on which the school district relies are hosted offsite at Wayne RESA (student information and payroll/finance) and on Google (email and most documents). “
