On March 15th, the Governor ordered all K-12 public schools to be closed statewide through March 27th. On March 24, the Governor extended school closures through April 10th. The OPI continues to provide support and resources as schools adjust to the longer closure.
On March 26th, the Governor issued a "Stay at Home” directive. The new directive does not change how schools are operating. Schools should continue to operate under the plans submitted to the Governor and all previous education related directives from the Governor. As it relates to schools, the new order says:
“Educational institutions, including public and private pre-K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, for the purpose of facilitating remote learning, performing critical research, or performing other essential functions consistent with prior directives on school closures and the continued provision of certain services, provided that social distancing of six-fee per person is maintained to the greatest extent possible. This directive is consistent with and does not amend or supersede the March 24th or April 10th directives."
