Safe & Clean Learning Environment

During a global pandemic, risk exists for any public gathering. However, to mitigate these risks, the district has developed a comprehensive plan that includes health and safety policies and procedures aligned to local, state, and federal guidance.


Tracking COVID-19


CPS is sharing data about actionable COVID-19 cases to keep the public informed about how the pandemic is affecting the district and its community. Case counts represent the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with CPS buildings. Case counts are not a measure of transmission in schools and numerous studies have shown that schools are not sites of significant COVID-19 transmission.
