The state government has declared that the classes for 9, 10 of SSLC will start from February 1, 2021. The first and second-semester pre-university students’ courses will also begin in February as declared by Education Minister.
A meeting was held between the primary and secondary education minister S Suresh Kumar, Health Minister K Sudhakar, and the Covid-19 Technical Advisory Committee.
The technical Advisory committee has decided to start the classes keeping in mind the students’ health and safety issues and considering the need for education and the students’ future.
The declaration came from the education minister that suggested opening the classes is essential; otherwise, the students’ future will be in danger. The decision was supported by the Health Minister and the Technical Advisory Committee to conduct exams and resume classes.
Also, it was notified from the government officials that the Vidyagama Programme which conducted the classes for students from six to nine would continue as usual. The government decided to make groups of 15 to 20 students in each class, depending on the school’s number of teachers and classrooms.
Schools and colleges remained closed-form last year March 2020 after the government announced lockdown due to the sudden Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. The classes stopped for a long time due to safety measures for students. But recently from January 1, 2021, the classes for class 10 and Class 12 have started.
Along with that, the Vidyagama program resumed, and the schools are now remaining open for half day. Provision for online and offline classes was provided to the students, and the parents were informed about the decision. Attendance was not made compulsory, and it was the students’ and parents’ choice to take either online or offline classes.
As per the report, 75 percent attendance was observed for the second PUC students. The class 10 attendance was near about 70 percent. However, low attendance was observed for the classes from six to nine, which was recorded 45 percent.
By looking at the attendance, parents of students studying in classes six to nine are more inclined towards online classes. For the higher classes, the scenario is a little different.
The offline classes of SSLC are being conducted according to the rules and regulations prescribed by the Health Ministry and the Technical Advisory Committee for Covid-19.
It is observed that students and teachers are safe and not report many positive Covid-19 cases are reported. Conducting online classes is also essential for the higher classes to commence the practical classes.
