A group of volunteers discovered school materials inside of a public dumpster.  There were folders containing sensitive student records among textbooks, novels, and workbooks. The folders contained student Social Security numbers, health records, grade reports, and student education forms.  An administrative error meant that custodians discarded obsolete materials that had been stored.  The items should have been delivered to the district's central warehouse or sold to used-book dealers. The items were recovered and transmitted to the correct locations.
