Last year, SchoolStatus, the district-wide communication and student data platform, announced the availability of contact tracing reports and tracking. The new compliance feature adheres to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines to help schools efficiently communicate if a student or faculty member tests positive for COVID-19 and monitor quarantine start and end dates. Schools will be communicating with their communities frequently. The communication needs to be more than a mass message as guardians will have questions and need rapid responses. To assist with this, we've paired these new contact tracing capabilities with our two-way communication platform to ensure that the families are informed and students are safe and comfortable in their learning environment.
School or district leaders can use SchoolStatus’ contact tracing report feature to generate a list that includes the infected student’s current schedule, names of teachers for each course in the section and names and ID numbers of all students who are also in the same sections. Adhering to CDC guidance, administrators can then communicate to those on the contact tracing report to take precautionary measures. With SchoolStatus, administrators can:
SchoolStatus’ contact tracing feature pairs its data and communication tools to support districts in meeting CDC compliance and ensuring safe and healthy learning environments for students. To support districts’ communication efforts, SchoolStatus has prepared a Contact Tracing Toolkit which includes communication resources like contact tracing announcement templates, positive case checklist, CDC resources and more.
