About Pooled Testing

  • OUSD has partnered with Concentric by Ginkgo to provide free pooled classroom testing for students. 

     

    What is pooled testing?

    Pooled testing is a more efficient way of testing groups of people. Twenty-five students can be tested at once, with all students in a class swabbing their noses and placing their swabs in a single tube. The samples in that tube are then run as a single sample, using one test. This allows for quicker results. If a positive in a pool is detected, then we’ll immediately follow up with individual tests to determine who is positive.

     

    How can your student participate in pooled testing?

    In three easy steps:

    1. Visit https://testcenter.concentricbyginkgo.com/minor-consent/
    Paper forms are also available in Spanish | Arabic | Chinese | Vietnamese | Khmer.
    If needed, please print a form in your preferred language, fill it out and return it to your school office.

     

    2. Enter your school's access code. See below for a list of school access codes

     

    3. Enter your child's information and you're done.

     

    Note: If you need to provide consent for more than one child, please complete the process once for each child. 


    Only students with completed consent forms are able to participate in testing
