The closure of on-site instruction for K-12 schools has been extended to the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Education will continue through alternative methods of instruction (AMI). Arkansas AMI, the partnership between the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Arkansas PBS television, has been expanded through May 22.

K-12 schools and extracurricular activities, including athletic events and pratices, will remain closed for on-site instruction until such time as the Governor, Secretary of Education and Secretary of Health deem appropriate.
