Education Week is keeping track of the coronavirus pandemic's impact on the nation's schools, including whether the buildings and facilities educating more than 55 million students are open or closed and for how long, as well as the directives, recommendations, and guidelines states have issued to maintain student learning, as confirmed by state authorities, official statements, and original reporting.

The unprecedented activity around remote learning has revealed a wide range of state policy approaches. Several states have strongly worded directives ordering school districts to put in place distance learning programs by specific dates; many are providing recommendations and resources, but not direct orders; and others are offering districts options for different levels of remote learning they might use. States are also very concerned about tech equity issues, as many make it clear that remote learning can be done either online or through print materials sent home to families.

This page provides a status report on each state, links to relevant state documents, and summaries from Education Week reporters with additional information and context.
