Revised Case Rate Threshold

Posted on 02/23/2021

DSUSD receives approval of its CSP at the county level and case rates drop below 25 per 100k residents

Today, Desert Sands Unified School District was informed that the county has met the revised case rate threshold of less than 25 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents for 5 consecutive days. Under recently-revised California Department of Public Health Guidelines, school districts in Riverside County can now open for in-person learning via the hybrid model for elementary students if they have an approved COVID-19 Safety Plan (CSP). Desert Sands is one of four school districts in Riverside County to receive approval by the County Public Health Officer. The District now enters into the 7-day wait period for state approval of the CSP.

The Board of Education will consider a specific date of return for students grades PreK-5 at its March 02, 2021 meeting. Under current state guidance, counties have to reach a threshold of 7 or fewer cases per 100k residents (Red Tier) to resume in-person learning for middle and high school students.
