Factors in Learning Model Decision

ISD 47 regularly reviews these data points. The district works with a COVID-19 command team, local medical providers, local public health departments and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to make decisions that are best for our community. ISD 47 will communicate decisions every two weeks but may more frequently as necessary and when changing learning models.

Please review symptoms in your student and follow the guidelines about what to do if your family experiences symptoms or becomes a close contact throughout the 2020–2021 school year. We will update and provide more information as it becomes available.
