Each weekend, read a curated summary of the work produced by the members of the Pittsburgh Media Partnership.




Tracking Fall 2020 school plans

More than 300,000 students attended K-12 public schools during the 2019-2020 school year throughout the seven-county area making up the Pittsburgh region. As they return for the fall in the middle of a pandemic, the members of the Pittsburgh Media Partnership are working together to track how schools are providing instruction while also protecting the health and safety of their students and employees.

About the data: The Pennsylvania Department of Education required all public schools in the commonwealth to create health and safety plans detailing how they will deliver instruction and protect the health and safety of their students as the COVID-19 public health crisis continues into the 2020-2021 school year. Reporters and editors across the news organizations making up the Pittsburgh Media Partnership have collected and verified the documents, dates and information presented in the tables below.

The tables show frequently updated information for public schools in the counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland. Within each table, you can search for a school district by name and find a link that takes you directly to their full health and safety plan, along with notes on its current status and changes made to the opening plan for the first day of school.
