The official guidelines for reopening schools in India are likely to be released later this week. A final decision will be made when all related ministries are in agreement.
As per reports, the approximate date set for reopening schools is sometime in July and schools will reopen with 30% attendance and social distancing norms -- possibly in two shifts.Teachers would need to be trained to follow and help others follow the guidelines and school assemblies won’t be taking place, the reports said.
"How will a classroom be able to hold 40 students if social distancing is carried out?" HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal had asked.
These guidelines would help reopen schools and colleges in well-informed and researched manner to ensure student and teacher safety amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
