An email sent out Monday by Frederick County Public Schools alerted parents and students to an unintentional release of information regarding the upcoming school year.

A glitch in the FCPS Student Information System had provided access, for a short time through the Home Access Center, to high school and middle school student schedules for the 2019-2020 school year.

Through the email alert FCPS stated, “It is important for all parents, guardians and students to understand schedules are NOT official until they are released by their school.”

According to the alert, schools are still working on schedules and any information viewed on Monday should be treated as “preliminary and unofficial.”

"...schedules are NOT official until they are released by their school.” The school did release them, so I guess they're final. (until they aren't).


Where is Katie Nash?? FCPS IS A JOKE.




This is not the first time FCPS has breached student privacy and confidentiality and it won’t be the last. This also isn’t the full story, rest assured. No system can fully guard against incompetence and mismanagement. This is what we get when we expect excellence everywhere but deliver it nowhere.


Not the first time this has happened.
