Thank you in advance, and if you have questions, then please email
Chris Rogers (crogers@aasa.org).
As part of our ongoing advocacy efforts specific to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, AASA has released the second iteration of our nationwide survey, which will provide data that better illustrates the impact of COVID-19 in schools in terms of the effect of the pandemic itself and the resulting economic downturn.
The data from this survey will be used to track how districts are responding to federal and state pressures to re-open schools and deliver equity-based services during the crisis. Moreover, the survey will help detail the fiscal impact of COVID-19 on our nation’s public schools.
AASA’s last COVID-19 survey received more than 1,600 responses from 48 states and produced valuable data that has been integral in our advocacy efforts on IDEA, the homework gap, and the federal Coronavirus emergency relief legislative packages. However, we could not have achieved these results without your help.

A company owned by Joel Zamel, an Israeli entrepreneur whose work has drawn the scrutiny of special counsel Robert Mueller, formed a strategic partnership with a data firm for President Donald Trump ’s campaign in a joint bid to win business from the U.S. government and other clients after the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the matter. The Psy-Group, one of Mr. Zamel’s firms, signed a memorandum of understanding with Cambridge Analytica LLC, a digital media firm that helped propel Mr. Trump to the presidency, these people said. Facebook Inc. in March suspended Cambridge over allegations that it improperly harvested the data of millions of Facebook users, accusations that in part led to the firm’s closure earlier this month.

ShinyHunters is a hacking group on a data breach spree
Wired ($): A new hacking group on a selling spree. In the first two weeks of May alone, the group known as ShinyHunters have posted 200 million records from at least 13 companies on the dark web, including Home Chef and allegedly other companies like Zoosk. It’s the same group that allegedly stole 500GB of Microsoft source code from a private GitHub account. The group is following in the footsteps of a similar hacking group, known as GnosticPlayers, which stole data on dozens of companies last year.

New details have emerged on how Grayshift, a company that sells iPhone hacking technology to law enforcement, breaks into devices when it doesn’t have the user’s passcode.

But cops said the passcode app is buggy and doesn’t always work.
