Union County Public Schools students can expected their delayed report cards Monday, Oct. 26, now that technical issues with the state’s report card processing program have been resolved, said Union County school officials.
Report cards for the district’s 42,000 students were due Wednesday, Oct. 21, but school officials postponed distribution after a “massive” Internet attack on the state’s PowerSchool Group program that processes report cards. At issue was the accuracy of the cards, officials said.
Union was one of about 20 school systems in the state impacted by problems, officials said. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district was not among them.
In an email to Union County school officials, North Carolina Public Schools officials said the PowerSchool Group began experiencing an unprecedented attack aimed at overwhelming the system with traffic from multiple sources.
