Factors and data points for 2020-2021 Continued Learning Model Decision

Updated on Thu, 10/22/2020 - 11:07am

The district’s goal for this school year is to provide all students, staff and families a meaningful learning experience in a safe environment. In order to make a decision for a continued learning model for the remainder of the semester, the district will consider the following factors and data points.​

  • COVID-19 Case Data (By County): Monitor virus data at the county level, including the following three data points:*
    • Number of cases per 100,000 residents\
    • Positivity rate (the percentage of COVID-19 tests that come back positive). This figure is considered by health experts to be an indicator of whether there is sufficient local testing taking place and how extensive community spread is.
    • Growth in cases (a measure of if and how much case numbers are rising or falling in the community)
           *The district will reference COVID-19 case data from the Tri-County Health Department and Broomfield Public Health and Environment in making a decision.
  • Staffing Levels: Monitor staffing levels to ensure the district can provide a safe and productive learning environment for all students, staff and families. 

  • Current Quarantine Guidelines and Experiences: Review in-person experiences, including but not limited to the impact of possible student and/or staff cohort quarantine situations, both within the Five Star District’s Learning Pods and in neighboring districts. 

  • Community Feedback: Collect and analyze feedback from staff and families regarding remote learning this fall, and their interest in the learning model for the remainder of the semester.
