LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Las Vegas-area school district says student and employee information was exposed in a data breach involving a contractor's web program.

The district says the breach also exposed the names and work locations of a "small number" of employees.

The district says the breach involved Pearson Clinical Assessment's program AIMSweb. The district no longer uses the program.

Pearson is offering credit monitoring services to those possibly affected.

It's unclear when the security breach occurred.
