Updated Scio School District Learning Model Status

Scio School District Learning Model Status- Updated 11-23-2020

Oregon public health officials have developed evidence-based metrics to help school boards and school districts make decisions about how they can safely reopen schools. OHA is working closely with the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) on its Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance for public and private K-12 schools for the 2020-21 school year.

For a school to return to in-person instruction through ODE’s On-Site or Hybrid instructional models, the county metrics below must be met: (the current 14 day metrics are listed at the bottom of this page)

Metrics
• For a school district that draws substantial numbers (>10%) of students or staff from multiple counties, the case rate and test positivity rate should be considered in each of those counties.
• Schools must be in a county that is no longer in baseline phase to consider in-person instructional models.

Prioritize On-Site or Hybrid instructional models: (for K-12 onsite/hybrid)
County Metrics – Large Counties (≥30,000 residents)
» Case rate: <50.0 cases per 100,000 population in the preceding 14 days
» Test positivity: <5.0% in the preceding 14 days

Prioritize careful phasing in of On-Site or Hybrid instructional models for elementary schools: (for K-5 onsite/hybrid)
County Metrics – Large Counties (≥30,000 residents)
» Case rate: 50.0 to <100.0 cases per 100,000 population in the preceding 14 days
» Test positivity: 5.0% to <8.0% in the preceding 14 days

Current Status

Level 1-  RED
DISTANCE LEARNING

Linn County Metrics:
>200.0 cases per 100,000 population
>10.0% test positivity
*if either of the above metrics are met we must implement CDL with some allowable Limited In-Person Instruction only

Get to Know Each Model & Stage

Stages for our learning models allow us to pivot, when required to do so, between comprehensive distance, hybrid, and in-person learning. These stages will be determined by the impacts of a changing health situation, available resources, and direction from OHA, our Governor and our Local Health Department(s).  Individual school schedules and models may look different when we enter each stage and these plans will be communicated.

Level 1-  RED
DISTANCE LEARNING

Linn County Metrics:
>200.0 cases per 100,000 population
>10.0% test positivity
*if either of the above metrics are met we must implement CDL with some allowable Limited In-Person Instruction only

Level 2-  ORANGE
TRANSITION

Linn County Metrics:
100.0 to <200.0 cases per 100,000
8.0% to <10.0% test positivity
*if both one or both metrics above are met, we need to consider a transition to CDL if upward trending in cases, or plan for on-site/hybrid instruction if we are on a downward trend in cases

Level 3-  YELLOW
ON-SITE AND DISTANCE LEARNING

Linn County Metrics:
50.0 to <100.0 cases per 100,000
5.0% to <8.0% test positivity
*if both metrics are met K-3 on-site/hybrid for elementary school, with a plan for adding 4-5th in stages

Level 4-  GREEN
ON-SITE

Linn County Metrics:
<50.0 cases per 100,000 population
<5.0% test positivity
*if both metrics above are met then K-12 can return to On-Site/Hybrid

*All return to On-Site and/or Hybrid must meet required health metrics and safety protocols in each building. You can see the updated building Operational Blueprints for Re-entry by clicking this link.
