TYLER, Texas (KETK) – East Texas school districts have returned to the classrooms in the midst of spiking COVID cases, nearly exclusively from the Delta variant.

The state is requiring districts to file a report every week on how many students tested positive across campuses. They must be submitted every Friday and use data from the previous Monday through Sunday.

As a result, this data will always be a week behind. It also will not include private schools.

There are some instances when the number of students is suppressed by a school district. This is represented with an asterisk (*). These are the exceptions listed by the Department of State Health Services with the first one being by far the most common:

  • There are less than four total cases on campus
  • A campus has a positivity rate of at least 90% if it has at least 15 students
  • A campus has a positivtiy rate of at least 50% if it has less than 15 students

The information below is self-reported by the schools to the DSHS. Since classes started recently and the data is at least a week late, many districts are not listed below or did not have figures available for both students and staff.
