Covid Background Image

MCH is staying on top of emerging changes in the K12 community during this unprecedented time.

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, our tactics to monitor and track its impact follow suit. Initially, policies surrounding COVID-19 were made at the state level and we configured our data compilation process based on that standard. More recently, however, the increase in local policy making surrounding COVID-19 has made it necessary to restructure our compilation process to maintain the high-quality data you need and expect.

In collaboration with multiple public and private stakeholders, MCH has invested significant resources into a strategy to continuously compile and refresh the below K12 public school data at the district level. We are offering this valuable resource as a free service to help you stay informed of the continuing changes to school district operational plans as the COVID-19 virus continues to impact our nation.

Below is how MCH defines the teaching methods. Most values are reliant on the person completing the survey and their individual interpretation of their instructional plans.

Full In-Person: Full in-person classroom instruction is available for all students. An option may exist for parents to opt out of classroom-based instruction. This option will need to be district sponsored. (i.e. not offered through another district. If this is the case, the other district is credited with enrollment). If this option exists, it’s a variable captured by a different question for parental choice.

Hybrid/Partial: Limited, in-person instruction. Examples include less than 5x/week in-person attendance or having some grades/levels remote and others in-person. This does not include the option for full-time in person instruction.

Remote learning only: No in-person instruction. May include exceptions for special populations of students. (Special Education, ELL, etc.)

Unknown/Undecided: The school district instructional plan was undecided at the time of compilation.

Other: The respondent didn’t feel any of the above options described their district’s instructional plan.

Pending: Data compilation in progress.
