The Assam Education Minister mentioned that the government will ensure the sanitisation part and students will have to wear masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus through schools.
Assam Education Minister, Mr Himanta Biswa Sarma, on Monday said schools in Assam would resume from 21 September but this would be only for classes 9-12. The schools will reopen in keeping with the Union Health Ministry's guidelines considering the safety of the students and teachers. Mr Sarma informed that students of class 9, 10, 11 and 12 can attend the schools from 21 September, but only after written consent from their parents or guardians. The minister also mentioned that fifty percent of the teachers will attend the schools for now.
Mr Sarma added that the government will ensure the sanitisation part and the students will have to bring their own masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus through schools. The Unlock 4.0 guidelines issued by the Central government in August allowed schools to partially re-open after September 21.
However, the Assam Government has come up with several e-learning initiatives using computer and mobile applications to maintain the continuity in the learning process.
