Arkansas Governor's School shifts to remote learning

Arkansas Governor's school announced Friday that the school will finish the remaining week remotely after three students and one faculty member tested positive for COVID-19. In the statement issued Friday night, the director of AGS, Dr. Robin Lasey, and Dr. Jeff Woods, co-director of AGS said, "Out of an abundance of caution, we will transition the remainder of the 42nd Arkansas Governor's School to a virtual format that will allow students to complete the curriculum from home.
