SALEM, Mass. -- A school psychologist's records detailing students'
confidential information and personal struggles were accidentally
posted to the school system's Web site and were publicly available
for at least four months.

A reporter for The Salem News discovered the records last week and
alerted school officials, the newspaper said in a story Friday.

To protect students' privacy, the newspaper said it withheld
publishing the story until the documents were removed from the
Internet, which occurred Wednesday.

The psychological profiles, some dating back more than a decade,
contained children's full names, birthdays and, in many instances, IQ
scores and grades, the newspaper said. Some reports detailed
information about depression, drug use, and physical or sexual abuse.
