COVID-19 SCALABLE SERVICES

COVID-19 K-12 Services

A year after the pandemic began, COVID-19 continues to create challenges for traditional approaches to in-school learning.

Schools across the country are struggling to determine the right approach for bringing students back into classrooms. But unlike last spring, when blanket closures of school buildings led to ad hoc remote learning for millions of American students, a growing body of evidence about viral transmission and risk reduction opens the door for new approaches this school year.

Our COVID-19 K-12 services are backed by evidence to help states and districts ensure a safe transition back into the classroom or hybrid learning for students, faculty, and communities.

Your unique challenges
Our collaborative solutions
 
Discover the right balance of attendance for in-person and virtual learning based on age and classroom size.
Create a dynamic plan that rapidly adjusts to the changing environment using our real-time case modeling and forecasting dashboards.
 

State, local, and school administrators can leverage our dynamic dashboards to simulate the spread of COVID-19 in real time. The agent-based models Mathematica uses help educators make informed decisions about how to offer needed in-person educational opportunities, while mitigating the risk of infection spread. In a recent study, Mathematica used these agent-based models to run more than 400,000 scenarios of infection spread across more than 100 different school situations, simulating the interactions of groups to assess their effects on the system as a whole. The tool enables users to adjust by school level, school size, operating strategy, approach to quarantines and closures, and the local community’s COVID-19 infection rate. The results offer educators and civic leaders a set of schools comparable to their own and provide insights based on evidence about the best approaches for individual communities and schools.

In addition, our models supply school districts with resources to address staffing changes, quarantining staff, and teacher shortages. Model and Forecast

Predict and identify the presence of COVID-19 and quickly prevent its spread on campus, in counties, or in school districts.
Monitor wastewater for COVID-19 outbreak detection in your community to keep your districts safe.
 

We can help your school or community create a community-monitoring and detection safety net. Using our proven process for testing wastewater, you can detect the presence of COVID-19 in your school or county even before symptoms appear.

Applying the same methods we use for community-level testing of opioids at wastewater treatment plants, we can conduct targeted COVID-19 testing at the individual building level. Mathematica offers expertise to synthesize, contextualize, and interpret wastewater data alongside other public health data. In partnership with local labs, our wastewater data analysis enables communities to build testing strategies that support informed decisions for mitigating the virus’s spread. Wastewater testing is inexpensive, yields quick results, and requires minimal lift from operations staff. Wastewater Testing

Agent Based Model (ABM)

COVID-19 K-12 Tool

Through this model, Mathematica helps show decision makers in education the probable relative effectiveness of different reopening strategies. The results illustrate the relative differences in the estimated time it takes for the first five infections to occur in the school population (students, faculty, and staff).
