COVID-19 Dashboard School Status

BCPS may move individual schools or groups of schools to virtual learning after reviewing a number of factors (e.g., percent of positive student and staff cases, number of staff, and students in quarantine, and special program considerations) in collaboration with the Maryland Department of Health, Maryland State Department of Education, and/or the Baltimore County Department of Health.

These closures will be tracked here.

Factors considered during collaborative team discussions regarding a move to virtual instruction include but are not limited to:

  • # of staff testing positive*
  • # of students testing positive*
  • # of staff in quarantine
  • # of students in quarantine
  • # of staffing vacancies
  • Special program considerations
  • Additional Information

*Consistent with the Maryland Department of Health definition, five percent or more of unrelated students/teachers/staff (minimum of 10 of these individuals) testing positive for COVID-19 in a 14-day period is a consideration. However, please note that the 5 percent threshold does not automatically result in school closure. If a decision is made for a temporary transition to virtual learning, parents/guardians at the school will be notified.
