The dashboard aims to alert parents and staff about all positive cases throughout the district.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colorado — Jefferson County Schools has launched a new online dashboard where data surrounding cases of the novel coronavirus at schools across the district will be posted.

The dashboard does not include data for students who are learning remotely or those who attend charter schools within the district. Anyone who is seeking information about cases at those charter schools would need to reach out to them directly.

Available data includes the number of confirmed cases, active cases, and when students who have shifted to remote learning will be able to return to in-person learning. Users can search by school or an area within the district.
