A Potter County school district has improved security protecting its student records after paperwork containing Social Security numbers, family incomes and student addresses was discovered at a recycling site in Canyon. The documents listed names of about 100 students at Bushland Elementary School who were eligible for free or reduced-price meals through a federal program during the 2003-04 and 2005-06 school years. Applications for subsidized meals from more than 20 families included their Social Security numbers, incomes, addresses and phone numbers.
