School Reopening Data

As the state and world navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, during the 2020–21 school year, Washington's schools provided instructional delivery in several different modalities. For most of the school year, OSPI required districts to report their mode of instructional delivery – first monthly, then weekly.

The following data are self-reported by each public school district, state-tribal education compact school, and charter school. From January–June 2021, the data were updated weekly to reflect the school or district's instructional model.

If you have questions about the data or need assistance navigating the data visualization, please email Student Information team.

Model for Delivering Instruction Data Definitions:
100% Remote: 
  • All Students are receiving instruction remotely
Small Groups and Remote:
  • Targeted students are receiving in-person instruction
  • The majority of students are still receiving instruction remotely
  • Specific grade-levels/bands are brought back in-person (fully or partially) in a phased approach
  • Other students still receive instruction remotely
  • Could include a hybrid and/or A/B structure for some, but not all students
Partial In-Person for All Students:
  • All students are receiving instruction, at least partially, in-person
  • In this model every student is receiving some level of in-person instruction, but it may not take place every day
  • Could include a hybrid and/or A/B structure
  • A remote option may be available for families opting out of in-person instruction
Typical/Traditional In-Person:
  • All students receive instruction in-person, 5 days per week
  • A remote option may be available for families opting out of in-person instruction
