Families were asked to make decisions about remote learning based on your gating criteria (including the old positivity rate) and that’s different. Will families have an opportunity to change their preference for learning environments?

The primary measure for the gating criteria is the incidence rate. It appears to have tracked very well with previous decisions. Transmission is still high in our community and we must continue to work to bring the numbers down.

We have worked closely with the school districts. They have implemented effective strategies to contain transmission within the schools. As always, districts, schools and families should make decisions about learning environment options that are appropriate for them. We have provided recommendations to them, based on current knowledge about the virus, our conversations with the superintendents and based on transmission levels in the community.
