Polk County Schools says student information may have been exposed in data breach

  • If you have a student who goes to school in Polk County you might have gotten a letter from a company called PCS Revenue Control Systems, Inc. about a data breach. 
  • Don’t throw that letter away. The Polk County School District says it’s legitimate and you might need the instructions that come on it for free identity monitoring.
  • The letter says your child’s name, student identification number and date of birth were potentially exposed to unauthorized access during a data breach in December 2019, according to a post on the school district’s social media page.
  • The letter says there is no evidence that any personal information has been used for malicious purposes.
