    There were 4 cases at InTandem @ Roxhill last week.- 3 staff and 1 student.  With such a small program it was enough to shut us down.  We are currently teaching remotely through the rest of this week.

      Thanks for the update. I guess SPS was not going to put this in it’s reporting, or maybe it was waiting for next week. Obviously they know about the cases if they had to go remote over it.

    Thanks for pointing out that the InTandem cases were at Roxhill. Good to know. The “regions” are apparently based on administration structures, rather than where the educational services are provided.  The InTandem cases are included  in “other” instead of Southwest. on page 2 of the SPS dashboard. They are included in the tiny “7” in the middle of the map above.

      The dashboard does have its anomalies; for several weeks now the SW region has included a line item that I’ve ignored, Middle College HS, which had a WS location years ago but does not any more.

    Is anyone surprised?

Sorry, comment time is over.
