Schools and Colleges to re-open from Sept. 21

September 15, 2020

Fresh guidelines expected this week

Bengaluru: After nearly six months due to COVID-19 threat, all Schools and Colleges will reopen from Sept.21 as per guidelines issued by Union Health Ministry.

To begin with, only 8th to 10th standards will function from next Monday. However, the State Government has not taken any decision regarding the commencement of 1st to 7th std. 

Another set of guidelines is expected from the Government within this week about the starting of classes. While online classes have already started from Sept. 1, the degree and other higher education courses are scheduled from Oct. 1.

Door delivery of books and uniforms: The Department of Public Instructions has already taken steps for the distribution of books and uniforms to students from 1st to 10th standards at their doorsteps. As per guidelines, 40 per cent of the syllabi have been reduced. 

The Government wanted to start the classes at the earliest to engage the students in academic activities. In view of Coronavirus threat, students studying from 1st to 9th were given promotion to the next classes without conducting the exam. 

A similar step was followed in regard to professional courses where only final semester exam was conducted whereas students of other courses were given promotion to next semester.

ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Schools and Colleges to re-open from Sept. 21”

  1. Bobby says:

    In the scenario of rising cases of covid 19 , it is stupid to reopen schools and colleges. Even the Central ministry declared that institutions won’t reopen till Sep.30th . How can you compare the loss of one year to the life of a child. Politics is the greatest black sheep. Almost all the schools in and around the country owned by the binami es of some or another political leader. They wish to cope up with the loss of their business. Now a days all the private institutions are running pure business not education. In very normal condition keeping the norms and standards of hygiene is really a matter of concern so do the authorities expect that they would follow the SOP? Who would bother to check these institutions ? Eventhough checking is done anything and everything could be bribed here. Please do find some other method to keep the people away from the ground reality of the country’s economical breakdown not by making another hot issue by opening the educational institutions and reporting the graph of affected patients. Please do not make educational institutions covid clusters ! Every life is precious that might be someone from the rich family or from a poor family. Now test is in the hands of crazy leaders. Ishwaro Rakshadhi!!
