The centre is planning to open schools zone wise in July with 30% attendance

Due to the coronavirus crises, Schools and Colleges have been closed in India since around 16 march and now it is been more than two months that students are unable to go back to their schools. Although online classes have been arranged for the students by their schools and colleges so that students do not lag behind. But it is not sufficient for students to make up because the whole academic year of students got affected by the pandemic.

Seeing the danger of coronavirus as number cases getting increased by each passing day, Centre government, by keeping all these things into consideration, is planning to reopen the schools in zone wise manner. Center is likely to open the schools Orange and Green district first, with 30 % of attendance or in a staggered manner and that too only for 8-12 Classes students while younger students will need to wait till the schools are operating in full swing before they join.

Reason for not opening schools for younger students is their age as it is difficult for them to understand the norms of social distancing. Due to this, the chances of spreading the virus among younger children are more. So they will continue their studies from home till the school reopen.

During the live interaction with teachers via video conferencing, HRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal “Nishank” said that we are in talking terms NCERT to prepare the guidelines for reopening of school and they have done most of the work. Some of the suggested measures are like calling 30 per cent of students at a time to maintain the social distancing norms, having no assembly session, seminars and gatherings in schools for a long time.

Apart from the plans of commencing the new academic session, he also informed teachers who are indulging in board evaluation duties that they do not need to juggle it with online classes.
