Superintendent Update: Review of Indicators

District

 

Good Afternoon,

Every Friday, our Norwich Team (Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Special Education Director and Business Administrator) had been meeting to review the leading and secondary indicators as they pertain to CT Department of Education Reopen Requirements Addendum 4. 

Please note that last night on the news, the Governor released a new metric and model and apparently this one is being discontinued. To be consistent, I have added the most recent information below as of 10/10/2020, but going forward, so as to not be confusing to parents and staff, I am just simply going to link the Governor’s interactive web page to our NPS website: COVID-19 Data Resources.  As such I am also loading onto the website the new CT DPH Town Level Response Framework Document released last night: CT DPH Public Health Town-Level COVID Response Framework.
