Pursuant to Public Chapter 652 of 2020, the State Board of Education was authorized to approve emergency rules to address the special circumstances created by school closures due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. Members of the State Board convened for a special called meeting on April 9, 2020, to enact emergency rules governing graduation requirements for Tennessee’s high school seniors and other necessary rule changes in response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis.

On June 22, 2020, the State Board of Education held a special called meeting to consider the Continuous Learning Plans (CLP) Emergency Rule 0520-01-17. This rule establishes the expectation for local education agencies (LEAs) and public charter schools to develop CLPs that maintain quality instruction during disruptions to traditional operations.
