COVID-19 Dashboard

Salem-Keizer Public Schools has more than 40,000 students across its schools and 5,000 employees in the district with an exceptional COVID-19 Response Team and District Health Authority. The COVID team and health authority investigate potential COVID cases and quickly communicate with anyone directly impacted by a positive case.

Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of students, families and staff.

The entire Salem-Keizer team strives for openness and transparency which is why the district is introducing its newest and latest COVID-19 reporting structure. Designed in the form of an easy-to-read dashboard, the goal of this reporting will be to keep the public informed on how COVID-19 impacts district schools.

The dashboard is now updated every weeknight and will show the total new cases reported during the current week.

The “Student Attendance Rates” dashboard will be updated daily. Please note that attendance rates can be impacted by more than just COVID-19 cases or close contacts. Other illness and professional or medical appointments also impact the number of student absences at a school.

COVID-19 investigation

When a positive case of COVID-19 is identified within the school setting, we work closely with the local public health authority to ensure that the person diagnosed with COVID-19 follows instructions for isolation and remains away from others until they can safely return to school.

Families will receive a weekly notification on Saturdays about COVID-19 cases in schools with a link to this dashboard.
