The District has continued to monitor the COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. Based on a fourteen-day positivity rate of 20.4% as of Wednesday, September 9, and support from both Johnson County Public Health and our School Board, the District petitioned the State for permission to continue in a 100% off-site learning model for up to an additional two week period. Permission was granted from the State late yesterday.
The Board of Directors will discuss these developments and determine the next steps at a special Board Meeting to be held at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. At this time, no decision has been made to extend 100% off-site learning past September 22, 2020. The options will be reviewed and discussed during the special Board Meeting before an official decision is made. We will provide an update following the meeting that will detail the District's plan regarding any additional days of 100% off-site learning, the potential transition to the hybrid learning mode, and the return of in-person extracurricular activities.
The health of our students and staff remains the primary focus in our decision-making. We will provide an update following the Special Board meeting that will detail any decisions made during that meeting. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we navigate this process. #ICCSDtogether
