Decision Tree Matrix to guide the decision to transition to online school

 

Board Approved Matrix

The Waukee Community School District (WCSD) Board of Education takes seriously its role in the implementation of SF 2310. According to that legislation, the Board is directed to weigh school and/or district closure as follows: Sec. 14. SCHOOL DISTRICT CLOSURES DURING THE 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR. For the school year beginning July 1, 2020, and ending June 30, 2021, if the governor proclaims a public health disaster pursuant to section 29C.6, the board of directors of a school district may authorize closure of the school district or any school district attendance center due to an outbreak of COVID-19 in the school district or any school district attendance center. School districts are encouraged to follow guidelines issued by the centers for disease control and prevention of the United States department of health and human services and the Iowa department of public health, and may consult with the local board of health when determining social distancing measures or authorizing a school closure.
