Schools in Karnataka open for classes 9-12 from September 21?
The Central government has issued SOPs for partial opening of schools and colleges post lockdown. The Karnataka government is set to open schools and colleges from September 21. But will the classes begin?
Bengaluru: Everything that had come to a halt in the last few months around the world is now getting back to normal, and so are schools and colleges.
Based on the guidelines issued by the centre, the Karnataka government is set to open schools and colleges, but in a step-by-step procedure.
Since the centre has given permission to partially open schools and start classes for classes 9-12, it is reported that schools and colleges will open in the state from September 21.
Asianet Kannada spoke to a senior official from the State education board and he said “It has been decided that colleges and schools will open from September 21. However, it is still not decided as to when the students can start attending the classes. The centre has issued a notice for partial-opening of schools from 21st, and that will happen”.
Based on guidelines from the centre, if the schools open then assemblies, sports, and events, which can lead to overcrowding, are strictly prohibited.
Students, teachers, and employees living in containment zones will not be allowed to attend the school.
The Karnataka government and the State Department of Primary and Secondary Education will soon give a detailed report on the guidelines for the opening of schools and colleges.
However, it is left to the parents whether they want to allow their child to visit schools and colleges in the current situation.
