With a decrease in Covid-19 cases, schools and institutions are slated to reopen in these states.
With the decrease in coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases, schools and colleges in states like Haryana, Gujarat, and Bihar are due to reopen, but students will not be forced to attend. For the time being, the option of studying online will be available.
As the number of cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in India has decreased, plans are being made to reopen schools and institutions in several states. On Friday, Haryana stated that government and private schools for students in grades 9 to 12 will reopen on July 16 with written permission from parents allowing their children to physically attend classrooms. On Friday, the Gujarat government made a similar declaration, announcing that educational institutions will reopen from July 15 forward. Bihar is also making preparations to resume classes.
According to the Haryana school education directorate's notice, high school students can physically attend lessons from July 16, while middle school kids (classes 6 to 8) can start on July 23. According to the order, everyone on the premises will be required to follow the relevant Covid-19 related regulations, and a decision on the reopening of elementary schools will be made later.
However, students who do not wish to attend school will be able to learn online, and their absence will not affect their grades. Schools for class 12 learners, as well as colleges for undergraduate and postgraduate students, will reopen in Gujarat on July 15.
These colleges would be able to operate with half the number of students on campus, but students would be free to attend classes voluntarily.
However, no decision has been made in any of the states about the reopening of elementary school classes, although physical classes for high school or middle school pupils are gradually reopening. It was said that any decision made in this regard will be communicated to the public via a government notification promptly.
