As we quickly approach a new school year, screening and diagnostic testing for COVID-19 remains a high priority for school districts across the country that want to ensure the safety of their students and in-person learning. 

So how best to accomplish this?

A recent case study published at LigoLab.com highlights how one school district in the state of Washington teamed up with a local testing provider and the state’s department of health to accomplish this, and how other schools and providers can establish similar partnerships.

We invite you to click on the link below to learn more about the Tahoma School District partnership with Atlas Genomics, and how both utilized the TestDirectly Direct-to-Consumer Portal to implement the Washington State Department of Health’s Learn to Return program.

Summary of the Tahoma School District and Atlas Genomics Partnership

  • Atlas Genomics piloted a school testing program in the spring of 2021.
  • Atlas was among the providers chosen to administer the Washington State Department of Health’s Learn to Return testing program in school districts throughout the state.
  • Tahoma School District, made up of 8,600 students, teamed up with Atlas in the fall of 2021.
  • The testing program saved thousands of educational hours and helped the district get through a variant outbreak of the virus in December of 2021 and January of 2022.
  • The TestDirectly DTC Portal helped Atlas and Tahoma manage the volume and streamline the testing workflow (collection, processing, reporting) with a turnaround time of no more than 24 hours for tests results.
  • Keys to success included a strong partnership between the school, the lab, and the software vendor, and parent/guardian buy-in.
