Education Minister, Bhupendrasinh Chudasama has announced that offline classes will also begin from September 2 for grades 6 to 8 in the schools of the state.
A meeting of the state cabinet chaired by Chief Minister, Vijaybhai Rupani and Deputy Chief Minister, Nitinbhai Patel today decided to start 6 to 8 offline classrooms, the education minister added.
The education minister also said that the state government has decided to resume classroom education with full vigilance so that the future of the students is not ruined and no student gets infected with corona.
He said that as a result of the effective work of the state government, the state cabinet has decided to restart offline education. These classes will be resumed with 50 percent capacity of the student body, he said. Not only that, the student coming for studying at the school will also have to bring the consent letter from his/her parents, who will give direct education to the students who give their consent. Online education will also continue for students who do not wish to study offline.
Schools will also have to ensure strict adherence to the S.O.P and Corona transition control guidelines for teaching grades 9 to 12 at schools in the state at present.
Appropriate social distance is maintained in classrooms in schools, teachers, other staff and students must wear masks.
As a result of this decision, classroom education of 32 lakh students from 30,000 schools including 20,000 government schools in the state will begin. Such schools must maintain adequate handwash/sanitizer points on the premises and follow all the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the government from time to time.
