State-by-state map of where school buildings are open or closed
This page will be updated when new information becomes available.
The COVID-19 pandemic is poised to make the 2020-21 school year as challenging—if not more so—than the last. The virus shuttered nearly every school building last spring in a historic disruption of education. Schools were forced to shift to distance learning nearly overnight.
As the coronavirus continues to ravage different regions, K-12 leaders may be forced to close and reopen in waves as infection rates ebb and flow.
This national map will track each state’s mandates or recommendations on K-12 school closures and openings.
As of July 28, 2020, 5 states have ordered that some in-person instruction be made available to students.
Some states may not weigh in at all on school operations, leaving the decisions entirely to local education and public health leaders. As states’ statuses change over the course of the academic year, we will provide updates.
Right now, just a handful of schools have opened, with the vast majority slated to start between mid-August and early September.
