Louisiana governor, John Bel Edwards plans to issue a formal proclamation closing Louisiana schools for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. includes a video in which Edwards declares the following during a April 13, 2020, press release while in Monroe, LA:

It is my intention to announce that school will not resume in the sense that students are going to go back to school, going to the school building.

Education will continue, the school year continues, but they will not be going back onto the campuses.

According to the April 13, 2020, Baton Rouge Advocate, Edwards plans to issue a formal declaration “later this week after consulting with state education leaders.”

On April 08, 2020, the Louisiana Association of School Superintendents petitioned Edwards to close schools for the remainder of the school year.
