GCSD to continue in HYBRID for Week 7

GCSD to continue in HYBRID for Week 7
Posted on 10/09/2020

Georgetown County School District will continue in HYBRID instruction for Week 7 (Oct. 19-23).  This week's DHEC report showed Georgetown County's overall rating has returned to HIGH, due to the Percent Positive rate rising from 7.3% last week to 10.4% putting it just above the threshold of the 10% High rating.  This increase in turn caused the Trend in Incidence Rate to move from Medium to High.  The Incidence Rate per 100,000 remained in the Medium category this week. 

GCSD reviewed the report with the SC Department of Education prior to announcing the continuation of HYBRID instruction.  As stated previously, a return to a HIGH rating does not mean an immediate or mandatory return to REMOTE instruction.  GCSD received permission from SCDE last week to move to weekly announcements so the decision for Week 8 (Oct. 26-30) will be made on Friday, Oct. 16th.
