This is the link to the state's school district COVID-19 reporting site.
Broome-Tioga BOCES has been made aware of significant discrepancies in the data provided by New York State on its COVID-19 online report card.
“The lab-reported COVID positive result count estimates the number of school-aged children (5-17 years old) who tested positive and reside within the area served by the school district. It may not reflect how many students attending a particular school or school district have been tested positive. The data comes from a NYSDOH database containing reported diagnostic results from all lab tests of New York State residents based on the addresses submitted with the test results.”
In working with the Broome County Health Department, we have determined that the data/estimation being reported can be inaccurate. The state COVID report card may not accurately reflect the number of cases involving our school district.
We have brought these concerns to the attention of state health officials.
Please be assured that we are making every effort to be transparent with our residents/community in sharing information regarding cases impacting the school districts in our region.
