With the decline in cases in India, many states around the country have decided to start offline classes for educational institutions to make sure that students get the right growth and physical exposure.
There are various rules and regulations that schools need to make to make sure that proper covid protocols are followed. Social distancing still needs to be followed at all times. 100% of the class cannot be called at once.
While many states are allowing classes 9 to 12 from September 1, some have also allowed reopening of schools for classes 6 onwards. Here’s a list of states that are opening schools in offline mode from today, 1st September:
Colleges and schools in the capital are opening for classes 9th to 12th from 1st September while classes 6th to 8th would be opening from next week. As per guidelines issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), a maximum of 50 percent attendance will be allowed.
Private and government schools in Rajasthan will reopen for the first time since April. To avoid gathering of all students at the same time, schools have been directed to keep separate arrival and departure timings of students from different classes.
Classes would be conducted for students of classes 6th to 8th from September 2. This was announced by the state government of Gujarat on 25th August. Students in classes 9th to 12th were allowed to attend their offline classes from July 26 when the cases had started declining in the state.
Classes would now also be beginning for classes 6-8 in Madhya Pradesh. At the same time, students in classes 9-12 can now attend offline classes daily.
