COVID-19 Dashboard

Welcome to the KCPS Data Dashboard site for COVID-19 data. This page details our gating criteria information and overviews of procedures upon in-person re-entry to our schools.

We also share graphs and associated information that detail positivity rates and trends within the Kansas City Public Schools boundaries. These data points will be updated on a weekly basis. We hope you find these tools helpful and informative for how we are making decisions about the health and safety of our students, families, staff and community. For questions or clarification, please contact us at communications@kcpublicschools.org.

KCPS endeavors to update information on COVID-19 events at school sites as soon as the information is available. Specific classroom information will not be included or listed on this dashboard in order to not disclose Personal Health Information (PHI). All students and/or staff in close contact with a disclosed COVID-19 positive individual will have been notified by the school nurse via phone or e-mail. COVID-19 events occurring in school settings are statistically the same as in the community at large. KCPS highly encourages all in the community who are eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to do so. KCPS will continue to follow CDC guidance for school mitigation (e.g., masking and social distancing, etc.) Questions or concerns should be directed to school building principals, Director of Nursing Lauren Grimes (lgrimes@kcpublicschools.org) or COVID Coordinator Sara Williams (swilia2@kcpublicschools.org). More information about contact tracing, isolation methods and health guidelines can be found on our COVID-19 Health Guidelines webpage.

Definitions:

Quarantine: Keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.

Isolation: separates people who are infected with COVID-19 away from people who are not infected.

Due to the time it can take for test results to be processed, additional cases will continue to be added for up to 2 weeks after the data is first published. Our numbers will differ from the overall numbers from the city because our numbers are based only the zip codes that overlap KCPS boundaries.

Total New Cases Per 100,000 Persons within KCPS Zip Codes

This graph shows the crude rate per 100,000 residents who tested positive for active COVID-19 infection within a 2 week period. This rate reflects the number of new positive cases as adjusted by population per zip code. ‘Crude’ in this context means that no adjustment was made for other factors, such as age. The colored bands correspond to CDC community transmission criteria.

Percentage of Positive Tests within KCPS Zip Codes

This graph shows the percentage of COVID-19 tests that returned positive for active infection within a 2 week period. The colored bands correspond to CDC community transmission criteria.

Zip code Data

Touch a zip code on the map to see data for that area:

New Positive Cases: The number of residents who tested positive for active COVID-19 infection over a 2 week period.
New Tested: The total number of residents tested for active COVID-19 infection over a 2 week period.
2-Week Positivity: The percentage of COVID-19 tests that returned positive for active infection over a 2 week period. This is only a percentage of residents who were tested, and is not indicative of the entire population.
New Cases Per 100,000: the crude rate per 100,000 residents who tested positive for active COVID-19 infection within a 2 week period. This rate reflects the number of new positive cases as adjusted by population per zip code. ‘Crude’ in this context means that no adjustment was made for other factors, such as age.

2-WEEK POSITIVITY RATE BY ZIP CODE

A map of the zip codes that intersect Kansas City Public Schools boundaries. For each zip code, the following data is provided: count of positive cases, total residents tested, and positivity rate.

Note: The following zip codes extend outside of KCPS boundaries:  64126, 64129, 64131, 64132, and 64133. An * indicates counts are estimated.
