    Metric Rating Scale

    The Tri-County Health Department data server is currently down for repair, which is impacting neighborhood and school district dashboards. Due to this impact, the CCSD COVID Tracker is not accurate and has been taken down until the Tri-County server and school district dashboards are back up and running. We thank you for your patience.

    NOTE: On October 5, 2020 the metric rating scale was updated from 0-8 to 0-12 when the CCSD Staff Incident Rate metric and CCSD Student Incident Rate metric were added to the total metric rating.

Science-Based Metrics for Safely Opening Schools

  • The Cherry Creek School District will use six metrics (with data specific to Arapahoe County) to determine if it is safe to open schools and under what conditions we must shift from In-Person learning to Remote learning.

    These metrics are based on science, facts and the best interests of our students and staff. They are NOT based on politics, perception, popularity or what other school districts are doing.

    These metrics are:

    1. Arapahoe County COVID-19 Positivity Rate
    2. Arapahoe County 14-Day COVID-19 Incidence Rates per 100,000
    3. Arapahoe County Daily COVID-19 case count
    4. Arapahoe County Daily COVID-19 Hospitalizations
    5. CCSD Staff Incident Rate
    6. CCSD Student Incident Rate

    For more information about our Decision-Making Metrics and Process, view this presentation.

Decisions made based on the model

  • Throughout the year, decisions made based on the scientific metric will be tracked on this page.

    August 6, 2020

    The Cherry Creek School District will open for In-Person learning (Full PreK-5, Blended 6-12) on Aug. 17 with a Phase-In Week as planned. Online learning will also start Aug. 17 as planned. This decision was made based on Public Health Metrics, which show a sustained decrease in the number of COVID cases in Arapahoe County over the past 10 days, and as a result of the district’s efforts to create a restart plan that prioritizes student and staff health and safety. To learn more about this decision, read the Superintendent’s letter to the community on the district website.

    “The CCSD re-opening plan represents a thoughtful approach to decision-making, with a solid foundation in the best available science, alignment with public health guidance, and provision of a clear and well-thought out plan to start the new school year and adjust course on an as-needed basis as the year progresses.”
