The report cards of 101 high school students were accidentally sent to the person listed as their emergency contact.  A vendor made an unauthorized change to the computer program that generates report cards.  If a parent had a high school student attending the district and was listed as an emergency contact for another high school student, then they received two report cards.  Parent names were listed on the report cards of each student, but parents listed as emergency contacts mistakenly received the report cards anyway. No Social Security numbers were exposed.
