Iowa Schools Will Not Re-Open This School Year

April 17, 2020 11:21am

Governor Kim Reynolds at her news conference today (Fri) announced schools in Iowa will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.

Reynolds said schools will be required to continue to provide continuous learning opportunities for students for the rest of the school year.

Schools were first recommended to shut down back on March 15th due to COVID-19.

School districts must present a "Return to Learn" plan to the state by July 1st to help students catch up for lost time in the classroom.

Reynolds has waived the mandatory school start date that falls in the final week of August, so schools may start the next school year earlier.
