Community Health Indicators

About These Indicators

In Rockwood, we have continued our regular collaboration with superintendents, medical professionals, and healthcare professionals. These indicators are a starting point, and one of the many factors we may consider in the health of our own school community. As always, the driving force behind any decision-making is the safety and well-being of students, staff and school communities.

This data was last updated on 5/7/21.

We update this information on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Data will not be posted on days in which the district is closed.

Please know that the data reflects information provided by the St. Louis County Department of Public Health, as well as information compiled by EducationPlus; it may be subject to change if we get updates from these community organizations.

Target of moving to 1.00 or less. Above 1.0 means increasing the spread, and under 1.0 means reducing the spread of the virus.​​​​
