Albuquerque school district to reopen after cyberattack

ALBUQUERQUE – New Mexico’s largest school district will reopen Tuesday after a cyberattack that forced a two-day closure, officials said.

The Albuquerque Public Schools district discovered problems last Wednesday with its student information system that tracks attendance, grades and emergency contact information.

The district said Monday it hasn’t fully resolved the problems, but it has found a way around the issues so that students can return to class.

“We will be able to take attendance, contact parents in emergencies and assure that students are picked up from school by authorized adults,” the district posted on Twitter.

The district serves one-fifth of New Mexico’s K-12 public school students.

Officials said students will have to make up the two days of classes they missed in May. The investigation into the cyberattack is ongoing.
