Primary Indicators

District Percentage

Staff Absences

Mitigation Strategies


Burden Rate

County Positivity Rate

Gating Guidelines (moving between in-person and remote learning)

Primary Indicators
3 or more met (low or moderate) to conduct in-person learning (Scenario A)
All Indicators have equal value

Indicator Percentage of current positive cases in the District (7 day rolling average)* Percentage of staff absent for COVID related reasons (5 day rolling average)**

Ability to implement 5 key mitigation strategies:

  • Consistent and correct use of masks
  • Social Distancing to largest extent possible
  • Hand Hygiene and respiratory etiquette
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Contact tracing in collaboration with health department
Burden rate (Number of new cases in Brown Cty. per 100,000 persons - 7 day rolling average) Positivity rate (based on Brown Cty. 14 day rolling average)
Low <.8% <10% 5 <20 <5%
Moderate .8 to <1.4% 10 to <15% 4 20 to <50 5 to <8%
Moderately High 1.4 to <1.8% 50 to < 200 8 to <10%
High >1.8% >15% OR unable to provide instruction 3 or less >200 >10%

*We may evaluate buildings in a different manner due to the potential for small clusters vs. the overall District community. Also, small clusters, classrooms, or grade level quarantines may alleviate the need for whole school or district level change in scenarios. This data includes all students whether they are in - person or remote.

**If the District is able to conduct instruction, that would suggest that we consider continuing in-person instruction. This will be evaluated independently with each situation. It may be necessary to impact only a classroom, grade level, and/or building as opposed to the whole district. The percentages given are our best estimate to aid in guiding decisions.

Should we experience significant spread in a school, we would consider an alternate scenario.

Should only 2 primary indicators be met (in the low or moderate category), the district will consider secondary indicators. Should the District continue to meet 3 or more of the secondary indicators, it may elect to continue in - person instruction(scenario A). In order to move from remote learning (scenario C) to in person learning (scenario A or B) we would need to have at least 3 primary indicators met (low or moderate category). Should a building or the entire district need to move to scenario c, the minimum length of time we will remain in that scenario will be 2 weeks.

The District may elect to open or close a classroom(s), school(s), or the entire district depending on circumstances.

Secondary Indicators

Student Absences

Hospitalization Rate

Contact Tracing




Secondary Indicators

Average percentage of in-person students absent for COVID related reasons 

(5 day rolling average)

Percentage of hospital inpatient beds in the community that are occupied (based on DHS NE WI 7 day rolling average) Ability to conduct contact tracing efficiently and effectively Adequate supplies of personal protective equipment (PPE) for students and staff, including health care workers
Low <20% <80% Yes Yes
Moderate 20 to <33% <90%
No No
High >33% >90%
As conditions warrant we may need to adjust gating guidelines as local data and trends emerge.
