Our mission is to educate all learners to reach their full potential as contributing and productive members of our ever-changing global community.

PLSAS COVID-19 Dashboard

Keep track of what’s happening with COVID-19 cases in our school district. Every week, we’ll post an updated count of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the district, as well as share the number of students and staff who are in quarantine. In order to best protect privacy, we will not include identifying information about the individuals who test positive. The Superintendent, in coordination with the District COVID-19 Coordinator and Scott County Public Health will continue to review viral case-rate data on a weekly basis to determine if a learning model change is warranted. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to changing learning models. Decisions must be based on clear trends and operational feasibility, not on a single data point.
