The extension follows updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and an announcement from the White House extending physi- cal distancing guidelines until April 30, 2020. On March 27, Ducey signed legisla- tion to support several education measures, including supporting schools during closures, require learning opportunities for students to continue, and ensure teachers and staff see no disruption in pay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
