Avila said he bought the computers at an auction and found the names, phone numbers, addresses, grades of students and other sensitive information on the computer’s hard drives.

According to Avila, the district offered to buy back the hard drives from him if he’d sign a non-disclosure agreement, which he said he wasn’t comfortable with.
