Virginia Beach school officials are notifying parents that a high school student was able to access names, addresses and Social Security number of students at 22 schools.
Police say the Ocean Lakes High School student hasn't been charged because there's no evidence that the student used the information, though misdemeanor charges may be pending. The breach happened May 6 because of an incorrect security setting and was discovered when the student tried to print some of the information in the school library.
School officials sent out a letter Thursday to parents of students at the 22 schools, asking them to contact police if they notice any fraudulent activity.
