DCSD COVID-19 Dashboard

DCSD COVID-19 Dashboard


DCSD's learning model decisions are made after considering multiple aspects, including both internal data collected by DCSD and external data provided by the Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE)

The data points below are not the sole basis for DCSD's learning model decisions. Our data reflects reported positive COVID-19 cases and may not reflect exactly what is happening in the entire school district. Our data does not account for individuals who have been exposed outside of the school district or individuals who choose not to report.


Internal Metrics

DCSD Interactive COVID-19 Data Dashboard

This data tool provides current COVID-19 reported positive cases, isolations, and quarantines. The data reflects total confirmed positive cases that have been reported to the district from staff and students doing in-person or eLearning. Charter schools* are not reflected in the data.

How To Use:
  • Select a Date Range to see all cases between certain dates.
  • Use the Feeder dropdown to see all cases within on or more feeder areas.
  • Select a Population to view cases in staff members, students, or both.
  • Hover the cursor over sections of the pie chart and total numbers for additional information.
*Please contact individual charter schools for information about their COVID-19 cases.


Important Definitions:
  • Isolation is for those who have symptoms, who are sick, or who have tested positive and separates those who are infected from those who are not.
  • Quarantine is for those who have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 and keeps someone potentially exposed to those with the virus, away from others.
  • Please visit the Health and Safety Mitigations page for more information




Road to Return Decision Dashboard

Each week, DCSD tracks and publishes key metrics from the Tri-County Health Department, as well as internal metrics (i.e., number of DCSD staff and students with positive COVID test, and the number of DCSD staff and students currently under quarantine. Each key metric is assigned a score indicating Low - High risk. The rating is tracked over time and must represent a sustained change (7-14 days) to consider a change in DCSD’s current attendance model.

External Metrics

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) Dial

Colorado’s dial framework standardizes different levels of “openness” at the county level. It is a tool for counties to use to make life during the pandemic more sustainable, allowing us to balance, to the greatest extent possible, controlling the virus with our social and economic needs.

Public Health Order 20-35CDPHE Dial - Red

P-12 public school and private schools for the purpose of providing meals, housing, facilitating or providing materials for distance learning, and providing in person learning or other essential services to students as determined by the school or school district in consultation with the local public health agency. Such institutions are required to work with state and local public health officials and follow case and outbreak guidance for schools when cases of COVID-19 are suspected or confirmed in students or staff to determine transmission mitigation strategies, isolation, quarantine and shifting to remote learning.
