On January 19, 2021, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) released new metrics and updated guidance (version 5.5.0) that determine if/when school buildings are able to open to in-person and hybrid learning.

Lane County Data:

The below image shows where these numbers put Lane County on the ODE Metrics color ratings chart, and explains what instructional model each color can begin moving towards. These colors are also reflected in the chart above.

If the two numbers are in different color columns, the county looks to the one that is further to the right on the chart below.

The metrics details are found in Section 0 of the Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance.
