SALEM, Ore.-- Gov. Kate Brown announced Wednesday that all of Oregon's schools will remain closed through the end of the school year.

All public school students will finish their coursework remotely through the Distance Learning for All program launched by the Oregon Department of Education.

"Nothing can replace the in-person schooling experience, and we should not expect that remote learning can replicate the traditional school day," ODE said in a statement to superintendents and principals.

ODE has also issued a guide for seniors to help them on their way to graduating in these unusual times. To find out more, click here.

Recently Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee announced they will keep their schools closed through the end of June.
