The Status field (generally Active or Inactive) cannot be edited when clicking on the Edit button on the record.
The record's status is governed by an Object Lifecycle.
Create an Object Lifecycle Workflow to control the Status. Or, disassociate the Object Lifecycle from the Record Type. (Note: Disassociation can only be processed if all records are deleted)
