PATNA [Maha Media]: The state education department on Tuesday allowed reopening of all government and private schools from September 28 for students of Class 9 to 12 seeking academic guidance on voluntary basis with written consent of guardians.
Principal secretary of education department Sanjay Kumar said, “We have decided to allow reopening of schools in a phased-manner from September 28. Schools will be allowed to call 50 per cent of teaching and non-teaching staff and 30 per cent of students.”
“School management will have to ensure the enforcement of Covid-19 norms. Wearing a face mask, thermal screening at the entrance gate and distant seating arrangement are mandatory. Students will have to carry personal hand sanitizer and water bottle. School management will have to ensure no exchange of articles among students,” Kumar added.
The education department has clarified that the schools outside containment zones will resume and students and staff members living outside containment zones will be allowed to attend the school. Accordingly, the city-schools are gearing up for the reopening under a new normal. Many schools have decided to reopen after September 30 as their schools have been made exam centre for conducting the on-going compartmental exam of CBSE.
