Disclaimer: I am one person who has a separate full-time job. Maintaining this dashboard is something I am doing because it was a need that I heard expressed in my community that I thought I could help fill. I do my best to be as accurate as possible and I am very thorough; however, I admit it's possible there are a few mistakes I haven't caught. Any discrepancies should not significantly alter any of these statistics. 

What is quite possibly producing a significant difference in my attempts to analyze and meaningfully visualize the data is the fact that DCPS has provided case notification letters for around 200 fewer cases than DC Health has reported have occurred (see graph below). At this time, the cause of these discrepancies is not clear, but please take this with the caveat that I am lacking any details on about 1/3 of the cases DC Health has accounted for.

If you notice any errors on my part or have any questions/comments/concerns, feel free to reach out through the form on the contact page. I also welcome any suggestions of data or charts you would find useful.

Safety Metrics 

(DC Health)

Since the beginning of the school year, the goal has been to do asymptomatic testing on 10% (or 20% after a long weekend or holiday) of DCPS students each week. They have not yet reached this goal.


DCPS and DC Health have recently changed the way they report their testing so we are now able to determine what percent of DCPS's student population is actually in the asymptomatic testing program each week.
