Act Provisions Aligned to CENTEGIX

CENTEGIX Support to Provision




Coordination of preparedness and response efforts of local educational agencies with state, local, Tribal, and territorial public health departments, and other relevant agencies, to improve coordinated responses among such entities to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.
ContactAlert and CrisisAlert together allow districts to use contact tracing to identify potential infections to prevent the spread of the virus. This support also provides the ability to have immediate response to a virus-related or medical issue in a classroom.



Providing principals and other school leaders with the resources necessary to address the needs of their individual schools.
ContactAlert and CrisisAlert together allow districts to use contact tracing to identify potential infections to prevent the spread of the virus. ContactAlert and CrisisAlert can also allow teachers to request help for children showing symptoms for COVID-19 and/or those being disruptive in the classroom, so the teachers can focus on classroom learning.




Developing and implementing procedures and systems to improve the preparedness and response eorts of local educational agencies
ContactAlert and CrisisAlert together allow districts to use contact tracing to identify potential infections to prevent the spread of the virus. The reports ContactAlert provides can be leveraged by the HR team (and potentially the Department of Public Health to help them identify individuals that may need to be quarantined). CrisisAlert brings onsite resources to an issue immediately; it also allows local/county law enforcement and other agencies to react quickly to campus-wide activities like lockdowns, shelter in place, evacuations, etc.
