CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) -- A Chesterfield County schools spokesman says officials are working to correct the erroneous disclosure of some students' personal information.

Spokesman Shawn Smith says forms sent home with about 130 students on the first day of schools contained classmates' Social Security numbers and other personal information.

He tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch ( ) that students in six classrooms at Hopkins and Salem Church elementary schools were affected by the error.

Smith says staff used software provided by the school division to print the forms. But setting on the software that allows the forms to be printed without personal information wasn't used.

He says school officials asked parents to return the forms. They are following up to make sure that all the forms are returned.
