@cherkies @TuckerCarlson @michellemalkin @SharylAttkisson We are sitting on a trove of MO docs showing that parents' personal information/passwords are on student/teacher Google school drive. @HawleyMO We have the proof. Can we get someone interested? https://t.co/Iu4tuB0mKG https://t.co/iu5UsIF2G6

FOX 5 reported:
A local family has claimed that the Springfield Public School System is accessing their personal accounts and storing their private information on the system’s Google Drive without their permission.
Springfield residents Norman and Diane Ely went before the school board earlier this year and asked that the district check into safety concerns regarding private information that was being stored on SPS’s Google Drive. They claimed that since that meeting, nothing has changed.
Tuesday, the Ely’s addressed the board again with more alarming discoveries.
The Elys claim that the SPS Google Drive, given to all SPS employees and students, automatically begins to store information from any device the drive is accessed on. This includes browser history, but also personal information such as files and passwords. They add that even if you log out of the drive, it stays running and recording in the background.
After bringing their concerns forward this past May, they say that despite the evidence presented, no serious action has been taken on behalf of the district.
“They have a lot of evidence and have had it since December, and we have not heard one word from any of them, said Dianne Ely.
