Here's what the district wants parents to know about the chart:

"CCISD is committed to transparency as we communicate during the COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate your patience as we prioritize care of the individuals who test positive as well as anyone with whom they may have come into close contact.

Cases will be communicated via letter directly to the employees and parents at each campus. When CCISD is notified of test-confirmed cases, numbers will be posted on this website. Although the district discloses case information to the local health district, we must maintain confidentiality for the individual who tests positive.

This chart includes all test-confirmed positive COVID-19 results that have been reported to the district.  These numbers include students who have chosen face-to-face instruction and those that are learning from home.  This information includes all reported cases beginning with the start of face-to-face instruction on September 8, 2020. Updates will be posted as information is provided to the district.  These are cumulative totals."

The district has released an action plan for how they will handle positive cases on campus. You can read the plan here: /article/news/ccisd-releases-2020-return-to-school-plan-read-it-here/503-8b92895e-f649-4040-b95c-f8575f7b2ace

 District officials remind parents that the situation remains fluid and plans could change as COVID-19 continues to be monitored in our area. Guidance from federal, state and local officials could result in changes.

While the district does have a plan, the CCISD website does not disclose if or when the people who tested positive were on campus, the actions the district is taking in reaction to these cases, or when the person tested positive.
