Jordan COVID-19 Data Dashboard

Website screenUnder the direction of the Jordan Board of Education, Jordan School District is launching a COVID-19 Data Dashboard. This dashboard will update parents and employees on current COVID-19 case counts so they can make the very best decisions for students, families and themselves.

When you access the Jordan COVID-19 Data Dashboard, you can:

  • Choose the school level, feeder system or office building by using the pull-down menu on the top right-hand side of the screen.
  • Find the number of current active cases and the number of active quarantines in your school or building.
  • See the approximate number of individuals in each building.

Case counts change frequently. The dashboard will be updated daily, Monday through Friday, by 1 p.m. on school days.

The dashboard can be found at movingforward.jordandistrict.org

To better understand the Jordan COVID-19 Data Dashboard, we invite you to listen to the following episode of our Supercast podcast:
