 When C.O.O.R. ISD staff receive notification of a positive case, they will notify the Health Department for the residence of the infected person, as well as the Roscommon County Health Department, and assist them with contact tracing.

 The Health Department will identify close contacts and may order them to quarantine. A close contact means any individual who was within six feet of a COVID-19 infected person for at least 15 minutes over 24 hours starting from two days before illness onset, or two days prior to testing positive for those that are asymptomatic. Please see the CDC website to learn what you can do to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

As long as there are cases of COVID-19 in the community, there will be no way to prevent all risks of COVID-19 spread in schools. The goal is to keep the risk as low as possible and keep schools/school activities as safe as possible.

Child care survey - Help Me Grow

The State of Michigan has issued an Executive Order to provide child care for children aged birth to age 12 for Essential Workers in our communities in order to support essential services in response to COVID-19.  "Help Me Grow" is serving as a common intake point for this effort for Essential Workers that are in need of child care during this time.   

Essential Workers:

Essential workers are listed as health care workers, home health workers, direct care workers, emergency medical service providers, law enforcement personnel, sanitation workers, child care workers, personnel providing correctional services, postal workers, public health workers, key government employees, court personnel, and others providing critical infrastructure to Michiganders

Please fill out this intake at as soon as possible. Please complete the intake if you are unsure if you fall under "Essential Worker". Once your intake has been completed your information will be routed to someone in your community who can help you find care. 

Additional information for parents:

To ensure essential child care services are safe, all disaster relief child care centers authorized under the order must perform a health evaluation of all individual who enters the facility each time they enter, and they must deny entry to those individuals who do not meet the evaluation criteria.  Additionally, all child care providers must continue following the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.

Constituent Districts

C.O.O.R. ISD  includes the counties of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw and Roscommon, an area covering 2400 square miles. Within this area, C.O.O.R. serves six local public school districts and two Public School Academies (see "District Map" to the right):

The ISD collects and monitors data that is required by the Michigan Department of Education and works with local districts to ensure that the type and nature of services needed within our area are properly represented at the state level.

The services that the ISD provides allow local school districts regardless of size to have access to quality personnel, services and programs that they could not afford individually. This prevents unnecessary duplication and better use of state and local money through the sharing of resources.
