Education's nationwide COVID-19 dashboard

To help principals and superintendents understand where COVID-19 cases are surging and how the pandemic is affecting K-12 schools, researchers from Brown University and several national education organizations announced this week they’re partnering to create a nationwide database that maps schools’ pandemic responses across the United States. The new dashboard, set to launch in September, is designed to allow education leaders to better understand COVID-19 data and nationwide trends as they make data-driven decisions to keep students and faculty safe. “The federal government hasn’t taken a meaningful effort to try to get [data] available in any meaningful manner,” said Noelle Ellerson Ng, one of the project's leaders. Betsy Foresman reports.

COVID-19 test data left unprotected

The University of Kentucky failed to secure a file that contained the names and dates of birth of students and faculty who tested negatively in COVID-19 screening tests. The university’s failure to properly secure this information was a “regrettable error,” said Jay Blanton, a university spokesperson. “It is fair to say several hundreds, the vast majority of whom were students,” Blanton told EdScoop, adding that the exact number of people affected is still being determined.

What is the ROI of your IT investment?

Colleges and universities have an opportunity to lower their IT operational costs and put those budget dollars towards student-centered services by prioritizing the simplification of the IT operating environment. When leaders use data to support infrastructure decisions — rather than following a “blind adherence to status quo environments” — they will free up more resources for student services, says Nutanix VP and author Steve Kaplan.
