Students who paid tuition for education programs may have had their 1098T tax forms sent to the incorrect address.  Between 150 and 200 people out of 2,000 were sent to the wrong address because a group of the tax forms were placed in envelopes without being properly separated.  Some people received the forms of several people while others never got their tax forms.  The district implemented a new step of sampling some of the envelopes in order to review the process before completing an entire batch.
