State Guidance on School Reopenings Amid COVID-19

This database presents information on guidance and guidelines for school reopenings provided by 49 states amid COVID-19. We exclude the state of Hawaii because the state administers a single local education agency.

To create this database, we visited state education agency websites and examined other official directives. We indicate whether states require districts to plan for multiple learning scenarios, whether districts must submit a reopening plan and have it approved, whether states recommend schedule modifications, and more.

We strive to provide information that is accurate, complete, and current. If you have questions or see information in our database that should be updated, please contact us at
