The Jackson County School District understands the importance of data security and protecting the information of our students, faculty, staff, and community. Access to some of the School District’s information systems is currently limited as a result of a virus we discovered late Friday afternoon. After discovering the virus, our IT Department immediately shut down the servers and network to prevent further infection and launched an investigation. We have obtained assistance of a leading technology forensic firm to help in the investigation. We are working diligently to secure our systems and bring them back online. As we have any updates regarding this situation we will make the information available.
