Measure #1: Average Daily Number of New Cases per 100,000 People (14-Day Average)

Threshold: Below four

    • For Massachusetts
    • For Norfolk County
    • In Wellesley

Two of the three levels (state, county, local) must be below the identified threshold for the entire measure to be rated below the overall threshold.

Measure #2: Positivity Rates (14-Day Average)

Threshold: Below five percent

    • For Massachusetts
    • For Norfolk County
    • In Wellesley

Two of the three levels (state, county, local) must be below the identified threshold for the entire measure to be rated below the overall threshold.

Measure #3: Staff Home Communities

    • Mean Number of Cases Across All Staff Home Communities

Threshold: Below four

    • Mean Positivity Rate Across All Home Communities

Threshold: Below five percent

Both metrics would need to be above the respective identified thresholds for the entire measure to be considered above the overall threshold.

How these measures will be used:

Full Remote Model of Instruction

District will move to an all-remote model if two of the three measures are above identified thresholds for two weeks.

Hybrid Model of Instruction

District will remain in a hybrid mode of instruction if two of the three measures are below identified thresholds.

Full Return to School for Students and Staff

District will move to a full-return for students when each of these conditions are met:

    • a) The state does not prohibit the full return of students and staff to school districts
    • b) Each of the measures of the District Dashboard remains below identified thresholds for four weeks
    • c) All state safety guidelines can be maintained with all students and staff back in buildings
    • d) Approval by the Wellesley School Committee, who shall consider the advice from the Wellesley Board of Health and the WEA/WPS Health and Safety Committee.
