FCCPS HEALTH METRICS DASHBOARD & GUIDANCE
This webpage provides an overview of the metrics and supports utilized as decision drivers for maintaining hybrid learning or moving to virtual instruction in response to community and regional health data related to the burden and transmission of the COVID-19 virus in the FCCPS community. Strong mitigation procedures, coupled with monitoring, can support providing stable instruction even in times of challenging health metrics.
OVERVIEW & PURPOSE
FCCPS has been monitoring health data consistently since the beginning of the pandemic. Over time access to more refined data and additional guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), and the Fairfax County Health Department have evolved. FCCPS utilizes this information to help drive decision-making for the division’s response to risk mitigation and provide a stable instructional environment for all staff and students. The following resources help guide decision-making and response and provide guidance to the FCCPS Health Metrics Task Force, the School Board, the Superintendent, and School Leadership teams regarding this process.
