Explanation of Dashboard Metrics:
Positive Cases District Wide: This displays only the positive COVID-19 cases reported by staff or students that would impact a potential building closure. It does not include positive cases by staff or students working remotely, or staff members not assigned to school buildings. As we resume hybrid instruction during the week of January 11, this indicator is low as all students and most staff have been away from the district for more than two weeks.
Total in Quarantine Today: This provides a measure of all students and staff that have been directed to quarantine. While positive cases are included in this count, so are any students or staff members directed to quarantine because of close contact to someone who has tested positive, those awaiting test results, or other COVID related circumstances where isolation or quarantine have been directed. When individuals conclude their period of quarantine and are cleared for return to school, they are removed from this count.
Daily New Cases District Wide (All Quarantine Types): This provides an indicator of the number of COVID-19 related cases and quarantines that were reported to the district. These are displayed as the date the quarantine started. As we sometimes recieve information in the days after a quarantine period has started, the numbers for each day can fluctuate as records are added or updated over time. Positive cases are a subset of the quarantine count.
Closure Gauges: These are school-specific indicators of positive COVID-19 cases that could lead to a building closure and a return to remote learning for all students. These represent positive student or staff cases for individuals who have been onsite at the school. They measure reported positive cases during a two-week rolling window beginning with the first positive case after the school has reopened. The closure thresholds are based on building size. These gauges are low as we resume hybrid instruction because students and most staff have been remote for the weeks prior to January 11.
