Doesn’t seem far-fetched to me. The school, having collected personally identifying information on it’s students, had a duty to protect that data on behalf of the students. If they were going to dump it, it should have been destroyed in a secure manner. Burned comes to mind.

Sorry, but this sounds like an inside job.

What school would be purposefully disposing of recent student records just because of a building move? It does not add up.

So much for that “permanent record” they were always threatening me with. I believe that it was teh PJ Soles character in Rock & Roll High School who said that ten years from now nobody will care if you even went to high school, and it’s true.
