Will APS provide access to COVID-19 testing? Will random testing be conducted?

updated Aug. 19

APS will provide in-school COVID-19 testing at every school location. This will be conducted weekly regardless of symptoms or exposure. Testing is already in operation at Kenmore Middle School for symptomatic and exposed students, staff, and families, and will be expanded to all schools in the 2021-22 school year for staff and students. APS is partnering with ResourcePath to test students, with parent consent. There are currently forms on the ResourcePath website for families to authorize their child to participate in COVID-19 testing. We encourage families to fill this out as soon as possible, so there is no delay in administering the testing during the school year. More details will be shared with families at the beginning of the school year.
