TUCSON, Ariz. - Gov. Doug Ducey announced Monday that schools will remain closed through the end of the school year, but online learning programs will continue.
On March 27, Ducey signed legislation to support several education measures, including supporting schools during closures, require learning opportunities for students to continue, and ensure teachers and staff see no disruption in pay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The new legislation also waives requirements for schools to make up for lost school days over the summer.
Until Monday's announcement, schools in Arizona were ordered closed until April 10.
Today's announcement to extend school closures through the end of the 2019/2020 school year brings stability and certainty to our school communities.@azedschools will continue to support our schools, students, and educators as we do our part to #slowthespread of #COVID19 https://t.co/q2VVf8Pz9t
