TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Vigo County School Corporation’s updated COVID-19 Dashboard shows improved numbers in student attendance ratings, a steady and low number of staff cases infectious on campus in the last 14 days, and slightly higher student cases and staff availability ratings across the district.
Middle school students started attending in-person four days per week on a Tuesday-Friday schedule on Tuesday. High school students will adopt the same schedule starting March 9.
The first two columns show staff and student cases on campus during the person’s infectious period in the last 14 days. There have been 12 student cases on campus in the last 14 days and 3 staff cases, changed from 6 student cases and 3 staff cases one week ago. The arrow beside each school’s case count indicates whether the number has gone up, down, or remained steady.
The third and fourth columns are designed to help the community anticipate closures at individual schools by providing a staff availability and student attendance rating by school. The three possible levels are “good,” “moderate,” and “severe.”
Currently, 22 schools are “good” for staff availability ratings and 5 schools are “moderate.” No school is “severe.” Staff availability is the most important indicator of whether a school needs remote learning.
In terms of student attendance ratings, 21 schools are “good,” five schools are “moderate,” and one school is “severe.” This is in contrast to the ratings two weeks ago that showed 19 schools “good,” eight schools “moderate,” and zero schools “severe.” Student attendance rating includes those students who are counted absent because of a consistent lack of engagement with school.
