This collection allows for more detailed reporting of student attendance by district, school, and student group. The following reports are the monthly summaries for the 2020-21 academic year:

The CSDE collected the learning model employed by the district on a weekly basis in 2020-21. The reports below provide a high level summary for the week. Map and data listing are also available below.

Health Indicators for Consideration of Learning Models

The key leading indicator to support decision-making on the level of in-person education recommended by DPH and CSDE is: The number of new cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 population per day (14-day average).

Additionally, the guidance in Addendum 4 identifies three secondary indicators: 1. Percent test positivity (# of positive tests/# of total tests, 14-day average), 2. Number of new COVID-19 hospitalizations per 100,000 population (14-day average), and 3. COVID-like and Influenza-like Illness (CLI and ILI) Syndromic Surveillance.

These indicators are summarized in the following dataset: CT School Learning Model Indicators by County.
