ESUHSD apologizes for releasing employee SSI numbers

The superintendent says the district was responding to a public records request and accidently included the Social Security numbers.

Superintendent Chris Funk issued a statement to ABC7 News saying, "The Bay Area News Group immediately informed us of our mistake and destroyed the file."

The district is offering a year's worth of free identity theft protection to employees.
