The District 67 COVID-19 Dashboard has been updated for the week as of March 28, 2021, to reflect the latest information from our schools and local health departments. The Lake County Health Department (LCHD) has moved the School Decision Dashboard to the main COVID-19 Data Hub and made changes to several graphics.
Our internal metrics look relatively good following Spring Break and we hope to see this trend continue! THANK YOU!
