School closures: Has the coronavirus pandemic shut down your school?

In Summary

CalMatters is tracking school closures for the coronavirus crisis. Check here for updates. 

The overwhelming majority of K-12 public schools across California have closed or will be closing in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. As of midday Monday, more than 6 million of the state’s 6.2 million public school students had been affected by closures that began in earnest this week.

That figure amounts to more than 97% of the state’s total public school student population. More than 830 school districts have announced closures, including all 25 of the state’s largest.

Many school districts say they plan to transition to online learning during their school closures, and to feed students who rely on schools for free or reduced lunch. Below is a spreadsheet of all the announced school closures gathered by CalMatters, along with their current dates of duration. We plan to update this spreadsheet regularly.
