Wakulla Schools Superintendent Bobby Pearce
School district set to negotiate with hackers

After a ransomware hack last week, the Wakulla Couty School Board had set a special meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 18, to approve a payment to the hackers to get its systems back.
Initial indications were that the district’s email, bus routes, library and food service systems were encrypted by the hackers. The hackers did not access payroll or student information systems.
