When the onset of COVID-19 happened, the need to make rational and informed operational decisions became primary for the health and safety of our students, staff, and communities. KPBSD incorporated science-based guidance to assist in our decision-making processes.
Find COVID19 Risk Level information for KPBSD schools in two places:
Webpage: KPBSD and COVID19 Risk Level descriptions, and information
DASHBOARD: KPBSD and COVID19 Risk Levels, updated daily from State of Alaska official counts
The KPBSD COVID19 risk webpage offers detailed information and shows low, medium, or high risk in three general areas of the Kenai Peninsula, and small communities. The risk determination is made in conjunction with the State of Alaska actual 14 day case counts, state seven day averages of positive cases, Public Health, the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS), the Alaska Department of Education and Early Learning (DEED), Kenai Peninsula cooperators, and the KPBSD COVID19 Community Risk Level Medical Advisory Group.
First version is live!
The new COVID19 Risk Level for KPBSD schools dashboard updates automatically with data from the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) daily positive state case counts. You can find it from the www.KPBSD.org homepage, and in future weeks, it will be automatically updated and visible on 42 school websites. Updates are daily.
