COVID-19 Tracker Update: March 23rd

COVID-19 Tracker Update: March 23rd

By Dale Chu

I hope you’re buckled up for more action on state testing this week. Since our last update on Friday, six states—Alabama, Arkansas, Hawaii, Minnesota, Oregon, and Wyoming—have taken steps to cancel testing or obtain a waiver. Two states, Hawaii and Wyoming, have publically announced that their waiver was already approved.

According to the Vice President, Secretary DeVos is scheduled to make comments later today about the waiver process. Of note: this notice from the U.S. Department of Education states that they will respond to waiver requests within one day of submission.
