FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVF) — Kentucky public schools will be closed for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. The state Department of Education made the announcement after a call with Governor Andy Beshear.

Non-tradition instruction, or NTI will continue for the remainder of the school year. It's reported that Governor Beshear instructed superintendents to post about the closure on social media.

Earlier this month, Governor Andy Beshear recommended that schools needed to be closed until May 1.

Monday's announcement comes after neighboring states Tennessee and Ohio made the same announcement.
