ALBANY, N.Y. – Parents can now view coronavirus statistics from their child’s school district online, using New York State’s newly launched COVID-19 Report Card.

Earlier this month, Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order requiring schools to send daily coronavirus updates to the New York State Department of Health, so it could be posted online and accessible to the public.

Schools and districts can be searched by name or address, and the following information is available:

  • Number of positive cases
  • Teaching model (in-person, hybrid, remote, etc.)
  • Total number of students and staff, on-site and off-site
  • Number of tests administered
  • The lab used for testing and turnaround time for results
  • Seven-day positivity rate

While schools were required to start reporting statistics to the state last Tuesday, no information was available on the dashboard until Monday. The dashboard will show the most recent date the information was submitted at the top of the page.

Some local districts have not yet submitted any data to the state, so no information is available on the dashboard. Most Mohawk Valley districts have reported 0 cases so far.

As it stands, schools are required to report statistics directly to the state health department. Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente says the county and the schools would be reporting similar numbers, and may create confusion.

"We're being too duplicative in this process, because as the system works now -- someone is tested, it goes to the lab, in this case it goes to Wadsworth, in Albany, which is the state labratory," said Picente. "The results come back, they come to us, we're informed, we begin the contact tracing, we send that data back to the state in another system called Commcare. They maintain the database. At the same time, we are doing contact tracing, we notify the school because we're doing contact tracing. The school, in turn, goes back to the state to tell them to put it on a dashboard which they already have."
