School Information

Embracing the way we do school this year has been difficult for many of our families. To help ease the burden on our local schools, Clackamas County has been assisting with their reopening plans, prevention and response protocols, and consulting on infectious disease management planning. 

The Governor has developed a framework using science and scenario forecasting to determine a series of metrics and guidance for schools to follow. These limitations are in place to create the safest environment possible with the information that we have today. As we continue to learn how to manage COVID-19, these indicators may change.

See the graphs below to understand where our local schools are today and what metrics we must reach together for schools to meet reopening requirements.
Kudos to our students, parents and teachers for adapting to these circumstances with such courage and grace. This school year will have challenges, and we will meet them together. Together we can keep each other safe while preparing our next generation to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
