Access the data you need to make informed decisions around COVID-19, school reopening and mitigation tactics.

The National COVID-19 School Response Dashboard systematically maps schools’ responses to the pandemic across the United States. Data is visualized in a single dashboard that empowers school leaders, policymakers and the general public to examine current conditions in their own areas —as well as compare against others— to adapt to changing environments and make data-driven teaching and learning decisions.

The dashboard provides information at the state level such as:

  • school type
  • average student infection rate
  • average staff infection rate
  • learning model (in-person, virtual or hybrid)
  • mitigation strategies being used

The dashboard offers a robust and growing set of locally-reported data directly to school leaders responsible for answering critical questions and ensuring the safety of their students, staff and community. The dashboard is updated on a bi-weekly basis.
