MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The assistant principal of a Missoula high school has resigned after an investigation found she released sensitive student information in an email to parents.
Hellgate High School assistant principal Libby Oliver resigned Friday, three days after the district announced she released the information to 28 parents in an email on Dec. 4. The email included an attached document containing academic, medical, disciplinary and criminal information on Hellgate students. About 1,100 students were affected.
Missoula County Public Schools Superintendent Mark Thane says Oliver failed to follow best practices in handling the data outside of the protected database.
Oliver was reassigned from Sentinel High School to Hellgate in September 2014 after the district discovered she had an inappropriate relationship with Principal Tom Blakely.
Blakely resigned the same month.
