Governor Expected to Announce Schools Will Stay Closed Through the End of the School Year

At his daily press briefing today (April 23), Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz is expected to announce the closing of Minnesota schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year.

The governor closed public and charter schools more than a month ago and directed school districts to switch over to electronic distance learning, which impacted almost 900,000 Minnesota students and their families.

At the time of the executive order to close schools, the closure set to expire April 30, leading to speculation that the end of the school year could potentially resume in the classroom setting. However, in recent days, Walz has hinted that he plans to extend the closures through the end of the year. That official announcement is expected to come today.

Walz’s press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m. and can viewed live on numerous platforms.
