The following school reporting dashboard for the academic year 2021-22 was last updated on March 10, 2022. Ohio K-12 schools are no longer required to report COVID-19 cases to their assigned Local Health Department, except in cases in which the school administers a COVID-19 test. This dashboard will no longer be updated as a result.

- Case Counts: Weekly case counts include full-time or part-time students and staff members who have tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19. Staff members include teachers, administrators, support staff, and coaches.
- Only cases among students or staff that engaged in on-site instruction, activities, or support services are included. Students or staff that were completely remote are not included. Regardless of the student or staff member's primary mode of instruction/work, an individual is classified as "on-site" if there was any interaction with other students or staff during the individual's infectious period. The infectious period is defined as the time from 48 hours before the onset of symptoms (or 48 hours before sample collection of a positive test for asymptomatic individuals) until the time when the individual is isolated.
- Reporting Period: Cases are reported by most recent week (new), and cumulative. The most recent week is defined as the previous Monday through Sunday, with updates provided weekly on Thursdays. The first update of this dashboard was on September 17, with data from September 7 to 13. While the reporting system has been in place since September 7, 2020, some schools may have chosen to include cumulative cases from before that date.
- Attending / Working in Multiple Schools: In a small number of situations, students or staff may attend school or work in multiple schools, districts or other educational settings (e.g., after-school settings). If an individual is positive and has had on-site interactions across multiple schools or districts during their infectious period, the individual would be counted as a case by multiple schools/districts for this dashboard. No cases are duplicated in the overall case numbers reported daily by ODH, but school cases are counted toward every school that is affected by a case.
- For instance, if a student spent most of their day on-site for instruction at a joint vocational school, and then went on-site to their home district for after-school activities, this student would be counted by both the joint vocational school district and their public school district. This is because both school districts would have had classrooms and buildings affected by this positive case.
- School Type Details:
- Public districts include traditional public districts, state supported schools, and STEM districts.
- Private schools include both non-public and non-chartered, non-tax supported schools.
- Community schools are commonly referred to as “charter schools.”
- Only ODE-licensed preschools and before- and after- school programs are included in this list. Any cases in preschools operated by public school districts are rolled into the school district’s overall case numbers.

As Local Health Departments and the schools they support transition to the new school year, the data reflected in the dashboard may include a combination of cases from the 2020-2021 academic year and 2021-2022 academic year.
