Podcast Special Edition
Recently we’ve been hearing conversations around data demonstrating that with certain approaches to safety, students can return back to school in classrooms. Dale Shaver from the Waukesha County Government returns to the podcast to share the strategic efforts their county has applied to connect public health and k12 education. The results of this high-performing, collaborative community effort reveal incredibly positive outcomes for their surrounding school districts in Wisconsin – one we can all learn from and model in our regions.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- What do the data say about the rates of in-person school covid transmission?
- What are the benefits of communities working together to collect data?
- How do business owners play a role in the county’s decision-making?
