COVID-19 Positives in Our Schools


All district positives are cumulative and are reported as the districts themselves have reported either publicly or through school notifications to parents.

Each graph is scaled based on the student enrollment and teaching staff numbers from the 2018-2019 school year, obtained from the National Center for Education Statistics.
Teaching staff numbers are reported by NCES as FTE (full time equivalent), as such will be rounded to the nearest whole value.

Changes in reporting methods in individual districts may have moved student/staff positives to unknown positives.

This happened in smaller districts after the Iowa Department of Public Health and the Iowa Department of Education handed down the guidance of reporting any positives under 6 as “less than 6,” in an effort to protect the anonymity of individual positives.
