Schools will remain closed until December – Central Government

 

The Central Government has stated that no timeline has been decided to reopen schools, but they would not be reopened until at least December. The Government has said the opening of schools will depend on the situation of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Union education ministry officials told a parliamentary panel on Monday that online classes are only meant for school children above Class 3 and only a limited number of online classes are allowed for those up to 8th standard.

Earlier, the ministry had asked states and union territories for parent’s feedback on a likely period when they will be comfortable with reopening of schools. A circular sent by the Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD), had also asked for parent’s expectations from schools as and when they reopen.

Schools and educational institutions have been closed across the country since mid-March after the government imposed precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus outbreak.

The centre since then has announced several relaxations but has not allowed the opening of educational institutions.
