KBOE Votes to Suspend Several Requirements Due to Coronavirus

The Kansas Board of Education is suspending some requirements for schools that could be closed because of coronavirus.

The board voted today (THUR) to let education commissioner Randy Watson waive rules so that students don’t have to make up any days if local health officials close schools.

As of this afternoon (THURS), no K-through-12 schools in Kansas have closed because of coronavirus.

There are four confirmed cases in the state, all in Johnson County and all adults.
