Sacramento City Unified Schools with lower state test scores tend to have lower vaccination rates

Students who do not meet the new deadline for obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly tests will have to work remotely

As the City of Sacramento Unified School District pushed back its deadline for students to get COVID-19 vaccinations or consent to weekly testing, a correlation has been found between schools with low vaccination rates and low scores on state standardized tests. The original January 31 deadline has been pushed back, with the school district citing the latest increase in cases of omicron variants. Students will now have until the end of February to meet the SCUSD requirements, otherwise they will have to return to remote learning on March 1. However, this can prove problematic for many students, as school district data shows schools with the lowest vaccination rates also tend to be schools where students have the lowest exam scores. Standardized state. On the contrary, schools with the highest vaccination rates are also more likely to have students with higher test scores. These figures suggest that the students who would benefit the most from staying in school are the most likely to have to switch to remote learning. For example: West Campus High School, 93% vaccination rate 93% of children met English/language standards 62% met math standards on most recent tests on most recent tests Sutter Middle School, 74% vaccination rate met standards in math on most recent testsAlbert Einstein Middle School, 44% vaccination rate 48% of children met standards in English/languages ​​32% met standards in math on tests most recentWill C Wood Middle School, 38% vaccination rate 29% of children met English/Language standards 21% met math standards in most recent testsLuther Burbank High School, 33% vaccination rate 42% of children met English/Language Arts standards 14% met Math standards on most recent testsHiram Johnson High School, 28% vaccination rate 26% of children s met English/Language Arts standards 11% met math standards on most recent tests The choice really for our families is to get vaccinated or register and consent to COVID testing now due to the rate of spread of COVID in our community. This would require weekly surveillance testing at our school sites. Our families only have to register for the tests once a year and once their student is registered, we will take them to this monitoring test on a weekly basis,” said Victoria Flores, District Manager of the student support and health services. To help increase vaccination rates, the school district held a clinic on Friday. KCRA 3 spoke to several people at the vaccination site, including a local teacher, Juanita Perales, who was there to vaccinate her granddaughter. “Working in a college, we end up finding a lot of kids who test positive and who aren’t vaccinated. We have to think about the rest of the kids who are there,” Perales said. distance learning in March.

The district said it was trying to get more families to meet its requirements and acknowledged that the recent increase has caused staffing issues.

“The real choice for our families is to get vaccinated or to register and consent to COVID testing now due to the rate of spread of COVID in our community. This would require weekly surveillance testing at our school sites. Our families only have to sign up for testing once a year and once their student is signed up we will have them take this monitoring test on a weekly basis,” said Victoria Flores, District Director of Support students and health services.

To help increase vaccination rates, the school district held a clinic on Friday. KCRA 3 spoke to several people at the vaccination site, including a local teacher, Juanita Perales, who was there to vaccinate her granddaughter.

“Working in a middle school, we end up finding a lot of kids who test positive, and they don’t get vaccinated. We have to think about the rest of the kids that are there,” Perales said.

The district told KCRA 3 that it hopes this clinic will increase the immunization rate in the district, which is currently at 52% overall. The district’s hope is to minimize the number of students who will need to transition to remote learning in March.
