COVID-19 Reporting Sandbox
Funding. Parsec Unified received COVID-19 relief funds for the safe reopening of schools beginning in February, with a priority for returning the youngest children (TK-2nd grade) and those who are most disproportionately impacted first, then returning other grade levels to in-person instruction through the spring. These funds will provide approximately $450 per student to school districts offering in-person instruction and will be weighted for districts serving students from low-income families, English learners and foster youth.
Safety & Mitigation. To further ensure health and safety in the classroom, Parsec Unified will focus on implementation of key measures, including testing, PPE, contact tracing, and vaccinations.
- Testing. Parsec Unified will support frequent COVID-19 testing for all school staff and students, including weekly testing at schools in communities with high rates of transmission.
- PPE. All staff and students in schools are required to wear masks.
- Contact Tracing. Parsec Unified uses the School Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT) to improve collaboration with local health officials, and members of the state contact tracing workforce.
- Vaccinations. School staff will be prioritized in the distribution of vaccines through the spring of 2021.
Parsec Unified and our schools are committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff.
The data below represents the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases among district students and staff on our campuses (in-person instruction and/or activities only). A confirmed case indicates that a student or staff member who was participating in on-site instruction and/or activities has tested positive for an active COVID-19 infection. This data will be updated regularly as cases are confirmed. In the event of a positive case, school communities will be notified directly by their principals or school staff.
