Late last month, for approximately 28 hours, all OPRF High School students had the same password for their school accounts in a cybersecurity mistake that was quickly corrected. The problem began on June 23 when OPRF’s data manager, Level Data, a Kalamazoo, Michigan company that specializes in managing data for school districts, was conducting a cybersecurity audit on the OPRF system.

“They were doing, basically, just routine updating and maintenance on our accounts and passwords and in doing so they inadvertently wiped out all of our students’ passwords. They also wiped any ability for us to go back and retrieve them,” Superintendent Greg Johnson told Wednesday Journal.

The result was that, because of what the school described as “an unexpected vendor error,” students could not get into their Google accounts, which they use for all manner of schoolwork and activities. Their Google accounts also link to their grades and other personal information. Every OPRF student has a school-issued Chromebook.
