District Criteria for Switching Learning Plans

How does the district determine when to switch learning plans?



New Cases per 100K Persons 

within the Last 14 Days

% of RT-PCR Positive Tests 

During the Last 14 Days 

GREEN (fully in school)


< 8%

YELLOW (hybrid)

100 to = 200

8% to = 10%

RED (fully remote)



The table defines the thresholds for switching between plans. Both criteria must be met in order to shift to a different plan. We will attempt to provide a minimum of one (1) week’s notice when switching to a different plan. Please understand that if a stay-at-home order is suddenly put in place or there is an unforeseen circumstance, the full lead time may not be possible. It should also be noted that if teacher absences at a specific building outpace our ability to secure substitute teachers, a school may need to close for a day or for an extended period of time. Parents will be notified of a school closure at least two (2) hours prior to the start of the school day.
