Official Statement

 

Neil C. Cavallaro

Superintendent, West Haven Public Schools

 

“The West Haven Board of Education is experiencing technical difficulties with its IT system. This was discovered on Wednesday morning, Feb. 26. The BOE and an incident response company have taken steps to resolve the issues and to determine the scope and severity of the problem.

At this moment, there is no reason to believe that any data was compromised or stolen.

As a precaution, the BOE has intentionally shut down some public-facing applications, such as PowerSchool, while we work to fully understand the breadth of the incident.

We will provide additional updates as information becomes available.”
