Delhi students will return to school in phases in September.
According to a government notice, offline classes for 9 to 12 regular students will start on 1 September. Six- to eight-level classes will begin on September 8th
In addition, colleges and training classes will also start on September 1, said Delhi Education Minister Manis Sisodia.
“It has been decided to re-establish schools, colleges, training activities in Delhi by all means, in a phased manner. From September 1, 9 to 12 classrooms in all schools, their training classes, and all colleges and universities will be allowed to reopen, “said Sisodia.
“Social segregation must be strictly enforced and no student will be forced to attend school. Parental consent will be required for students to attend. If parents do not allow it, students will not be forced to attend. It will not be considered non-existent, “he added.
The decision comes just days after Prime Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the Delhi government wanted schools to reopen as soon as possible but was looking into all aspects to ensure the safety of students.
“There has been a mixed experience of the countries that have opened schools. We have been monitoring the situation,” Delhi CM said.
“We want schools to reopen as soon as possible but we do not want to jeopardize the safety of students. We will make a decision soon,” he said.
The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), in a report released earlier this week, recommended that schools be reopened in all classrooms but high-achieving students were called to the first phase followed by middle-class students and finally to lower classes.
Recognizing that there is no damage now to the reopening of schools in the national capital, Lieutenant Governor Baijal asked on August 6 to ask officials to set up a committee of experts to issue a detailed plan.
The Delhi government had recently announced the partial reopening of schools and allowed 10th and 12th graders to visit schools while performing admissions activities, practical activities, and counseling sessions.
