Required Notification

On April 20, 2018, the Hancock County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Blanchard Valley Center, discovered that, for a time, it had been routinely forwarding files concerning children enrolled in its Early Intervention Program to local school districts, assuming the children would be enrolled therein.  Information in those files may have included confidential information concerning the child such as the child’s name, social security number, date of birth, diagnosis, treatment information and medications.  The forwarding of these files was in error absent a proper request from the relevant school district.  The Board has contacted each school district and either recovered the information or received assurances the information was shredded without further disclosure by the school district.  The Board has no reason to suspect malicious activity or that any unauthorized person viewed the information.  The Board has revised its process for storage and disposal of records and does not expect the problem to recur.  Each affected person has been notified by mail.  Questions may be directed to Superintendent Kelli Grisham at (419) 422 6387.
