Oregon Metrics for Resuming Hybrid / On-Site Learning

Oregon changed the metrics for school reopening on March 15, 2021:

  • ON-SITE LEARNING FOR ALL K–12 STUDENTS:
    Districts must offer on-site learning for all grades, if both numbers are green
  • ON-SITE LEARNING FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS:
    Districts must offer on-site learning for elementary school students, if both numbers are yellow or if one is yellow and one green
  • CAN RETURN TO COMPREHENSIVE DISTANCE LEARNING:
    Districts may limit instruction to remote learning only in specific circumstances, if either number is red

NO LONGER IN EFFECT

  • ON-SITE LEARNING PHASE-IN, ELEMENTARY ONLY:
    Districts may decide to begin carefully phase in on-site learning for grades K–5 if both numbers are orange, yellow or green

About the Metrics for Resuming Hybrid / On-Site Learning

Starting March 15, Eugene School District 4J began to phase in students’ return to school buildings in a hybrid model, with groups of students attending school on-site and online in alternating weeks, starting with the youngest grades.

The state of Oregon has established public health metrics and guidance for when schools must resume teaching and learning on-site, in full compliance with the health and safety measures required in the state guidance for Ready Schools, Safe Learners. These metrics, developed in conjunction with the Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Department of Education, were originally issued in July 2020 and revised in October 2020, January 2021 and again in March 2021.

Gov. Kate Brown, acting in her capacity as superintendent of Oregon’s K–12 schools, has required all public schools to offer access to fully on-site or hybrid instructional models by the week of March 29 for elementary grades, and by the week of April 19 for secondary grades. School districts are required to continue to offer an online-only comprehensive distance learning model for families that request it for the remainder of the 2020–21 school year.

Under the mandatory public health metrics:

For all grades to offer on-site learning,
– following all distancing, cohorting, and other health and safety measures

Over the preceding two-week period, Lane County should have had:

  • Fewer than 200 new positive cases per 100,000 population, AND
  • Less than 10% positive results in COVID-19 tests

For schools to offer on-site instruction for grades K–5,
– elementary school grades only
– following all distancing, cohorting, and other health and safety measures:

Over the preceding two-week period, Lane County should have had:

  • Between 200 and 350 new positive cases per 100,000 population, AND
  • No more than 10% positive results in COVID-19 tests

For schools to return to online-only learning*,

Over the preceding two-week period, Lane County should have had:

  • More than 350 new positive cases per 100,000 population, AND
  • More than 10% positive results in COVID-19 tests

* Schools can’t return to comprehensive distance learning based on county metrics if a school can demonstrate the ability to limit transmission in the school environment.

Note: Lane County COVID-19 case rates are assigned to the week when the underlying cases were first identified by public health as confirmed or presumptive. Test positivity data are assigned to the week when a test sample was collected. All data are provisional and subject to change. More information about how the testing data are collected and tracked can be found at Oregon Health Authority and Lane County Public Health.
