Testing for Dollars

We hope the K-12 Testing Program is going well so far for everyone involved. We sincerely appreciate your support and patience while our teams become familiar with each campus and establish an efficient collection process that can become part of your weekly routine.

The benefits can already be seen with over 70% of positive cases occurring during that first week a school participates. The highest number of positive results at any school has been only two individuals after that initial week of testing.

We are excited to watch each school's participation grow. Please keep sharing information about the program on your social media and any newsletters. Printouts to send home with students are a great idea to remind parents who have not registered their child yet. Feel free to share our website www.k12testing.com where each school's registration links are listed along with our FAQs and information on the program. Below are some important updates and information about the program.
