The Ark City school district and its employees were recently the victims of an online phishing scheme in which certain employees’ tax account information was compromised.

USD 470 officials said necessary steps have been taken to investigate and protect affected workers from potential identity theft. The district said it takes the issue very seriously and immediately reported the incident to local police, the IRS and the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center.

The district has also secured complimentary advanced fraud monitoring and identity theft protection services for its employees, at no cost to them, to further protect against potential identity theft.
