Brick School Redistricting Plan Could Affect Four Schools

Brick Township is considering redistricting – a term for changing the geographic boundary lines – of four schools within the township, though officials say a relative few number of students will be affected.

The schools include Veterans Memorial Elementary School, Herbertsville Elementary School, Lanes Mill Elementary School and Midstreams Elementary School. The district recently completed a demographics study and have been considering the redistricting effort mainly because of class sizes being too large at VMES, officials said.

“We haven’t finalized any redsitricting plan,” said Dennis Filippone, Director of Planning, Research & Evaluation for the district. “We still have two meetings with parent groups and then we have to get it in front of the board.

When tech bites back: How hack attacks affect schools

Hacking has made the headlines this year. After a string of high-profile cases such as TalkTalk, the telecoms group, and Ashley Madison, the online dating site, education joined the list this week when education network Jisc was hacked, leaving many institutions without an internet connection for several days. Aside from crippled services, the worst outcome is the exposure of students’ personal data. Just how easy that can be was demonstrated last month when a cyber attack on toy manufacturers V-Tech revealed six million children’s identities. Experts say that smaller attacks are happening more than official statistics show. Hacking is defined as “unauthorised access to a computer”. This may extend further than you expect. Under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, even a student who knowingly goes into another student’s Facebook page without their permission has “unauthorised access” and is, strictly speaking, acting illegally.
