Due to legislation, each month the Academy Board of Directors is required to reassess relevant data relating to COVID-19 transmission in our area, student attendance data, and relevant student achievement data to determine if our Extended Contingency Learning Plan should stay the same or be amended. Please see the board meeting calendar for the next meeting date. Monthly, each approved plan and any other relevant information will be updated on our website.

This dashboard is meant to provide parents, educators and the general public with transparency on confirmed COVID-19 cases.

*Please note that only Kent ISD programs with known, confirmed cases will appear on this dashboard. Programs that do not have known cases will not appear.
