Leaked! Fairfax High School Report Cards from 2011-2012 School Year for Every Student! 2,166 page PDF file
Posted by: Fairfax Leaks ()
Date: December 18, 2012 06:11PM

I found a thread here a few weeks ago that had an attachment named fhs final grades.pdf on it. I can't find the thread it came from anymore, and I looked around a lot.

This .pdf appears to contain report cards for every single student at Fairfax High School for the 2011-12 school year, grouped by teacher.

Have we talked about this yet? Did the orignal thread get deleted? Posting this from a proxy just in case. Is this against the rules? The file should be attached below.

edit by Cary (the admin): Pursuant to a preliminary injunction issued by the United States District Court in Alexandria, VA I have been forced to temporarily remove the file 'fhs final grades.pdf' which was previously attached to this post. For ongoing updates regarding Fairfax Underground's legal challenges please see the thread Fairfax County School Board v. John Doe and Cary Wiedemann. A copy of the injunction that preceded this removal is available here: Mandatory Temporary Restraining Order.PDF-c.PDF. This temporary injunction expires on January 4th, 2013.

The file which was removed from this post had the following attributes:
File Name: fhs_final_grades.pdf
Size (bytes): 5766953
MD5 Sum: 6576f2d687f1000e491a71fead56fb32

I must also remove the "text" version of this file below, but will provide a redacted version in its place until the injunction has expired.

I just used Acrobat to OCR the .pdf. A text version is attached to this message.

For ongoing updates regarding Fairfax Underground's legal challenges please see the thread Fairfax County School Board v. John Doe and Cary Wiedemann. A copy of the injunction that preceded this removal is available here: Mandatory Temporary Restraining Order.PDF-c.PDF. This temporary injunction expires on January 4th, 2013.

The file which was removed from this post had the following attributes:
File Name: fhs_final_grades.txt
Size (bytes): 3840887
MD5 Sum: d8b09e4af76b1e604a76f10778b61be4

I have created a redacted version of the file in question which omits the sensitive information available in the original. The original file was transformed by means of the following Regular Expression:
's/^\s*\d{6,7}\s*[A-Z].{35}/                                                  /g'

This Regular Expression essentially searches for any line that begins with a 6 or 7 digit Student ID and replaces the first 50 characters of that line with white space. The full conversion process was performed by executing the GNU/Linux command:
cat fhs_final_grades.txt | perl -p -e 's/^\s*\d{6,7}\s*[A-Z].{35}/                                                  /g' > fhs_final_grades-redacted-20121221-1750.txt

The redacted file 'fhs_final_grades-redacted-20121221-1750.txt' will be available at the bottom of this post in lieu of the original.

I don't understand any reasonable cause for posting student's grades online. I find this to be pathetic that you actually spent enough time to get this file, then use a proxy just so you could post it on the internet. Does mother not give you anything to do in the basement?

He used a proxy so that if the cops attempt to track him down, they'll have a harder time, because I'm fairly certain that this information was obtained illegally.

Although FCPS does not yet know who provided this information to Fairfax Underground, or how the individual(s) obtained confidential student grade information, it is conducting a full investigation into the matter and has notified law enforcement authorities. It also has demanded that Fairfax Underground remove the student information, and will take further action if that organization does not comply.

The dollars spent teaching your brat are mostly wasted and stolen from people like Taxpayer and myself. You should be ashamed for talking back to the person who pays the bills you are responsible for.
I'm certain though that you are not ashamed nor will you ever be.
You have bought into the sick fiction that criminal actions undertaken by many are no longer immoral, but laudable.
Have some respect for other peoples' opinions. Especially those you owe a debt to.

Oh My God, I have Johnnie's Junior year grades!!! I am going to hold on to these until that one day when he is going to apply to a job and mail them to the HR Department! No, wait, I am going to blackmail Johnnie when he comes up for that big promotion in 20 years. Are you kidding me?

You, Crafter59, are way too full of yourself. You pay for the school bill, yu can do whatever you want. As a tax payer, I thinkI have a right to see how well the school system I support is educating people. If you don't like it, go to a private school and pay for it yourself, without my help.

You guys are idiots. I can tell right away that the parent probably pays more taxes than all of you combined, judging by the lack of maturity that is so obvious in your posts. My guess is that you all make so little money (if any) that you are certainly in the 0% tax bracket, so until you start supporting yourself instead of living off of mom, dad and the government, keep your pie holes shut.

If your mom and dad want statistics, which I agree they are entitled to, they are clearly posted on the FCPS website. Actually, more statistics than you could possibly make use of (or understand). All you gotta do is look it up. Probably too much for you to handle, but I'm sure your parents can figure it out.

I suspect that they've already sent a demand letter (or demand E-mail) to Cary. Next they'll send one to Cary's Web host, if they haven't already.

After that, they file a lawsuit and ask the judge for a court order demanding the information be taken down.

They've already notified the Fairfax City police. Since it appears that several Federal laws have been broken, they may also ask the FBI to become involved.

In addition to the Patch article and WTOP, this story is also on WNEW, WJLA, and the Huffington Post (although WNEW didn't specifically mention Fairfax Underground). With all this publicity, I'm anticipating quite a few new posters will be making an appearance on here, which is like an early Christmas present for you, eesh.

As a taxpayer and American citizen, I would like to point out this is a violation of the 1st Amendment right to privacy, as well as FERPA. I hope the individual who did this is caught and tried by a court of law for this blatant posting of individual's names and grades.

There are other means, already in place, for judging the effectiveness of teachers.

A quick check of the document properties reveals that it was authored using Microsoft Word 2007 by someone named "John" on October 24, 2012 at 7:57 in the evening.

Of course, this means very little, because the document properties can also be easily faked.

lol! Cary saw this thread 2 days ago and edited out the principal's last name but left the 2166 page document right there. That's why this is the best place on the internet.

you must have read it incorrectly because the first amendment is about being able to say what you want. the "right to privacy" is nowhere in the constitution or its amendments.

Dear Cary and Ben:

Our firm represents the Fairfax County School Board. Fairfax County Public Schools administrators were alerted today that two electronic files containing the grades of thousands of Fairfax County Public Schools’ students were posted yesterday on your website www.fairfaxunderground.com. These files were posted by someone identified as “Fairfax Leaks” under the message: “Leaked! Fairfax High School Report Cards from 2011-2012 School Year for Every Student! 2,166 page PDF file.”

We are contacting you in your capacity as the moderators of Fairfax Underground to notify you that these disclosures were made illegally, and in violation of the privacy rights of the thousands of students who are each identified by name on your website. We request that you immediately remove these files from your website, and preserve the records and other evidence in your possession, including all user accounts, IP addresses, and any other information about those who posted, downloaded, or accessed these files. Please advise us in writing that you have done so.

The School Board is committed to protecting and preserving the privacy rights of its students. We will take all steps necessary to do so and to limit the continuing damage that this unlawful disclosure has caused.

If you would like to discuss this matter, please feel free to contact me, or my partner, [redacted] (703.000.0000/[redacted]@[redacted].com. Your prompt cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

[redacted]

Hello [redacted],

First let me apologize for the delay in responding to your request. For clarity, the discussion thread in question resides here: http://www.fairfaxunderground.com/forum/read/2/1069819.html

This is an interesting legal and moral dilemma and I am unsure of exactly how to proceed. Fairfax Underground has a rich history of free speech and as such the standard operating procedures are to NEVER delete any legitimate content from the forums, regardless of how mundane or childish, so long as the claims made therein are true, and it doesn't violate one of the extremely simple rules which are: No spam, no complete garbage, no personal attacks, and no impersonation.

With that said, however, Fairfax Underground also takes the security and privacy of its users very seriously, and routinely removes content that was posted specifically to harass or embarrass other users. The motivation for this post does not seem to be malicious, rather intellectually curious, and as such doesn't qualify for moderation based on a personal attack.

Do you know of a Virginia law that explicitly prohibits the disclosure of this information? The federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) applies only to schools themselves, not necessarily non-authoritative third party sources. If you can identify a section of the Code of Virginia that explicitly prohibits the disclosure of this information I will certainly remove it, but without such a clear prohibition my gut instinct is to allow the thread and attached files to remain.

Can you confirm that this file truly does contain accurate information regarding the grades of students at Fairfax High School? As I have no way to verify the authenticity of such this file I assume it could just as easily be a hoax. Similarly, as this .pdf file comes from an anonymous source, and is hosted on a server that has no relation to the school system whatsoever, the material contained therein should never be trusted as authoritative information by any college or employer.

If this document exposed private information such as social security numbers or home addresses I would certainly remove it immediately; but as it stands there's nothing intrinsically dangerous about the information revealed, only embarrassing.

Please rest assured that I have and will retain full logs of this incident indefinitely, however, I do not intend to ever reveal them without a valid court order. Please note that the thread in question was posted from a "Tor" exit node, a sophisticated anonymizing network, which makes it very unlikely that the original author will ever be positively identified.

With all of that said, most of the damage has already been done. As this file has been posted on Fairfax Underground for over 48 hours and has already been downloaded hundreds of times removing the file and/or thread would not halt the redistribution of this information. Removing the thread in question at this point would only serve to inconvenience the casual browser, and may even lead to individuals altering the original file to disparage or glorify a student or teacher, and then passing off their modified version as the true original.

As I type this message I understand that various media outlets have picked up the story, as there is a discussion underway in the thread in question itself discussing the merits of retaining vs deleting this information. At this point I intend to allow the discussion to play out, listening to the concerns of the community (both for and against removing the content) and will come to a decision regarding this issue tomorrow.

I sincerely apologize for the trouble this issue has caused. While Fairfax Underground does strive to be a free place for whistle blowers to share sensitive and embarrassing information, it certainly does not intend to play host to the unnecessary exposure of innocent people.

If you have any further questions or requests please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks and enjoy!

As the file in question may have some scholarly value, and the deletion of said file certainly will not prevent its redistribution, my instinct here is to leave everything intact. Please comment in this thread if you agree or disagree with my decisions and reasoning and I will certainly take your comments into account.

- Cary (the admin)

Personally, I think you should delete the files. Whoever did this has no regard for others. Maybe he(she)) is a sociopath. If he gets his kicks hurting people or has no regard for the consequences, his actions are going to get more extreme. Letting him get a foothold here would be a mistake. Or do what you like.

FU sheds light on a very serious problem---data security at FCPS.

They should be looking into how this information became public.

I do not believe FERPA violations allow for monetary damages, but FCPS could certainly face a fine from The Department of Education.

As the un-official correspondent for the WUSA9 News Team for the past 3 years, I completely agree with you and applaud you for keeping true to your websites core values. However, I must interject that while the posting on your blog does not necessarily violate the terms and conditions for using this online tool that you call Fairfax Underground, I firmly believe that it would be right and just to have those articles in question removed.

FCPS has a long history of FERPA violations. Many schools post a student's GPA on websites and publicly disclose them--at sports banquets for example. There will be a 10 person basketball team and they will announce that 8 students received a gpa of 3.0 or better fogetting that they disclosed the gpa of the remaining players.

Last year, one high school (principal is an idiot) thought he would reward studnets with good grades/attendance by giving them sore sort of lanyard with an award or something so it would be the "walk of shame" in the school for kids who did not have the lanyard. The absence of one would identify them as either pooracademic students or having a suspension on their record.

Its hilarious to see them play the protector of confidential records now.

Well thought-out as usual. Deleting it now would be pointless.

These people inevitably get caught. It's not your job to delete a thread like this to try and prevent the OP getting positive reinforcement out of other people's misery (or whatever someone above said). You could do that all day and the forum would pretty much be empty. :-)

Posted by: Centreville identifies GPAs ()
Date: December 20, 2012 08:24PM

There are many opportunities available at Centreville High School for academic recognition. A majority of these are initiatives brought on by the Academic Enrichment Committee. The following are some of the ways students are recognized for their academic achievements.

CVHS Academic Letter - If a Centreville HS student keeps a 3.8 or higher GPA for an individual school year, he or she may earn a CVHS Academic Letter. These are identical to the varsity athletic letters awarded to varsity athletes, with the addition of a sewn-in Academics designation. If a Centreville HS student earns more than one CVHS Academic Letter over their time at CVHS, they will receive a gold-colored bar pin that can be pinned on the letter, designating that they have earned a 2nd or 3rd year. These Academic Letters are awarded annually, usually in late September, for the previous CVHS school year.

CVHS Honor Roll - Centreville High School offers several opportunities to achieve Honor Roll status. If a student earns "all A's" on their report card, they are eligible for the ALL A Honor Roll. These students are recognized with a special breakfast approximately 3 weeks after their "All A" quarter ends. If a student earns "all A's and B's" on their report card, they are eligible for the ALL A/B Honor Roll. Both the All A and All A/B Honor Roll students are awarded certificates, a letter of congratulations from CVHS and a "Proud Parent of a CVHS Hono Roll Student" bumper sticker. Additionally, the names of all students making both honor rolls are posted in the CVHS Academic Hall of Honor.

CVHS "On a Roll" Honor Roll - Three times a year, faculty are given the opportunity to award a "Most Improved" status to a student they're teaching, via the "On a Roll" Honor Roll. This particular Honor Roll is intended to award the efforts of those students who are diligently working to improve their scholastic efforts and academic record. These students are honored with a congratulatory certificate that can be redeemed by them for a treat in the cafeteria. Additionally, their names may be posted in the Most Improved section of the CVHS Academic Hall of Honor.

Student-specific Hall of Honor - This area, prominently featured in the main hallway of CVHS, highlights academic achievement of all levels at Centreville High School. The quarterly Honor Roll recipients for the "All A" and "All A/B" Honor Roll names are listed here. Additionally, any student achieving a perfect score on any CVHS- issued SOL test will have their name listed. Because studies have shown that good attendance equates to better grades, all CVHS students with perfect school attendance are showcased here as well. Finally, all students winning an "On a Roll" designation are featured under the Most Improved Students section.

School-specific Hall of Honor - CVHS has won a large quantity of school-wide awards in a variety of categories over the past years, and these school-wide academic awards have their own display case. We are very proud of our outstanding CVHS faculty, who have won county, state and national awards since CVHS's opening and who continue to do so today. As a result, all CVHS faculty members who win or have won awards related to their areas of instruction are featured here.

Underclassmen Awards - At the end of each school year, freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are recognized for their outstanding achievements in the classroom at our annual Underclassmen Awards Ceremony.

Senior Awards - At the end of each school year, seniors are recgonized for their outstanding achievements in the classroom at our annual Senior Awards Ceremony.

FERPA states:

Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.

Date: December 20, 2012 08:46PM

With respect to educational information, FERPA precludes the disclosure of this information absent the prior approval of the student or parent. The issue of what constitutes “educational information” has been hotly contested and subject to much litigation since the inception of FERPA. FERPA defines “education records” as “records, files, documents, and other materials” that are “maintained by an educational agency or institution, or by a person acting for such agency or institution.” While it is clear that educational information includes a student’s transcripts, GPA, grades, social security number, and academic evaluations, courts have also included in this category certain psychological evaluations.

Posted by: Hoping it will go away ()
Date: December 20, 2012 08:46PM

The School Board and their lawyers are just doing what typical control-mentality people do when facing an embarrassing issue: Do whatever it takes to deflect blame and hope that it goes away before they get implicated or otherwise look bad.

Taking down the file or this thread doesn't serve anyone or anything, other than the School Board. The information is out. Whoever obtained the information may or may not have criminal or civil liability for trespassing, violating the school system's terms of use for their computer systems, or something else, but this site is not culpable just because the person chose to upload the file here.

The notice they sent to Cary has no teeth. They just hoped that it would intimidate Cary into taking down the file voluntarily. They will not be able to obtain an enforceable court order. Notice I said enforceable, because they may find a sympathetic judge who will issue one, but Cary can easily fight it since it serves no purpose and protects nobody to take down that file now.

i was watching the wusa9 video of what happened and they showed pictures of the documents and talked about how the student id #'s were also included in the file. then they went on to say that those numbers are used for billing students school lunches but also so the kids can log onto blackboard for their assignments. they said the students still need a password to login but i wonder how many of those students use the password "password" or "password1" or "!QAZ1qaz" or something along those lines...Although I never would've know those numbers were there or what they were for if the news hadn't told me.

What is derived from doing this; these kids, many of them are busting their asses to better themselves, apply to colleges and work thorough an incredibly hard period(4 months). Truly, I don't give a rats a** about what you believe the rights of the original poster to be; delete it.

Cary; these kids don't need additional pressure having to correct, cure or battle bs info when applying to colleges.

If your kid doesn't get into Tech or UVA, it won't be because someone leaked grades from last year. But I can imagine you are on pins and needles waiting to find out if all of your hard work and helicopter parenting has succeeded in getting your spawn into a good school.

Yes, admissions officers are trolling the internet looking for one semester's worth of grades for one student from one high school, because they don't receive the entire 4 year transcript from the school's guidance counselor.

Overreact much?

The kids failing geometry aren't busting their asses. One kid had 11 absences.

Good grades -> good college -> be proud

bad grades -> mcdonalds -> we could deductively reason why the kid is working there (but maybe the kid couldn't lol)


Then this guy
>Yes, admissions officers are trolling the internet looking for one semester's worth of grades for one student from one high school, because they don't receive the entire 4 year transcript from the school's guidance counselor.

lol not like the kid isn't going to send his full and official transcript anyways, right?

Step off; you have no clue pal...

In today's economic environment these kids are battling for in state spots when UVA, Tech, GMU, JMU, etc would far rather take out of state tuition income so as to cover tuition deficiencies; just a stupid response. Mindless energy on your part. Nothing worse than someone who speaks, (or texts under the cloak of darkness) bs

My friends and I have nothing to do with the leaked grades. You can't be so dumb that you think anyone who posts a comment is responsible for the original posting, can you?

I don't want to talk to other parents. They are all self-righteous and talk a lot about their little spawn and how important they are for raising kids.

My kid worked so hard and this site just ruined his chances of getting into a good school now.

All those hours he spent studying for the GMAT down the drain.

Parents today act too entitled.

There's a reason the indians and asians are the only ones success with educational endeavors.

They apply themselves and dont expect Obamas handouts!

A big fcuk you to the parents concerned over this. It should encourage your rug rats to do better!!!!

So, it's likely a dump file that was produced towards the end of the school year, then sat around until some enterprising person found it sitting around and converted it to a PDF file in late October.

Why would that person then have sat on the file for another six weeks before posting it on Fairfax Underground?

I'm thinking it was produced by one of the administrators at Fairfax High School, who then left the file on his or her computer. An enterprising youth somehow gained access to the computer (probably one of the FCPS' laptops) and copied off the file, either to a USB stick or simply E-mailing it to himself. (Either the administrator did not delete the file, or simply moved it to the windows Recycle Bin, or the youth used an undelete utility to recover the file.)

He then took the file and tried to figure out how to release it without leaving a trail back to himself and discovered the TOR network.

"The dollars spent teaching your brat are mostly wasted and stolen from people like Taxpayer and myself. You should be ashamed for talking back to the person who pays the bills you are responsible for.
I'm certain though that you are not ashamed nor will you ever be.
You have bought into the sick fiction that criminal actions undertaken by many are no longer immoral, but laudable.
Have some respect for other peoples' opinions. Especially those you owe a debt to."

The twisted mind behind the above desperately needs help. You are defending the illegal posting of private educational records of minors, in violation of state and federal laws, while arguing that OTHER people are treating criminal actions as laudable? Good grief.

Good idea. Why don't you start this by posting all of your private information?

You clearly can't read, so let me help you.
1. Info posted
2. Taxpayer thinks it's not so bad
3. Ignorant, freeloading parent tries to should taxpayer down
4. I defended the EXPRESSION of the Taxpayer, not the posting of the information

Get a job and use the money to pay for a real education because your government school clearly failed you.

The issue is not whether it was posted to Fairfax Underground or whether you should leave it up. The issue is that the FCPS's data was compromised. If FU didn't exist, then the OP would have just posted it on another site. It sounds like the blame is trying to be deflected from FCPS's security breach to FU's role in the information's dissemination.

The spirit of FU compels me to think it should be left up. This info is hardly scandalous and it's not blowing the roof off of some massive cover-up. As long as you, Cary, are not in violation of any laws, you should leave it as-is. I would, however, be cooperative with any official, legal requests to comply with an investigation. This information is hardly worth a costly, protracted legal battle.

+1

I think that whoever posted the file is an ass. I'm sure that plenty of kids have been needlessly embarrassed (though I think it is absurd to believe this will have any significant impact on admission to college/future careers).

However, I think that the school's response should focus on preventing this from happening again. This file is not the problem and has likely already been posted elsewhere - perhaps in a more indexable format.

Cary did you verify that there are actually 2166 names in the uploaded pdf file as stated in the "Mandatory Temporary Restraining Order as found on this page:Fairfax County School Board v. John Doe and Cary Wiedemann? The original poster had stated that it was a 2166 page file of Fairfax HS students(as opposed to 2166 student names) and didn't mention the actual number of students. I don't know the total number as I never personally open the file, however, if in fact there aren't 2166 students then the Restraining Order is actually invalid based on a technicality.

Disclaimer: I am not an actual attorney but I have some experience in getting off on a technicality.

And there it is! The reason the post was allowed despite blatant violation of underage kids privacy! Was it so much more important for you to get the publicity and new posters than to make sure your site and your posters are not endangering the kids in the area? SHAMEFUL!!!!

I'd like to know how you believe the "kids in the area" were in any danger. Sure it had the student's names but those are also published on all FCPS website's athletics pages...It was a violation of privacy and a violation of the FCPS computer security which is why it was more of a threat to the Fairfax County Public School system than it was to any child that was involved. The security and privacy violations that occured by allowing a user to have authorized access to make an unauthorized release of that information has the potential to lose the County a lot of money in federal funding for education for years to come.

oh no, think of the children! It's all about the children!

Your logic is flawed. This site doesn't generate any revenue of any sort for the owner, so there is no need for publicity or new posters. There is no personal identifying information in the file, so the underage (or even over age) kids are not at any risk, whatsoever.

But that shouldn't stop you from getting all worked up. Think about the children!
