Andhra Pradesh: Schools in Andhra Pradesh will reopen on November 2
The central government has given permission for states to decide on the reopening of closed schools by October 15 as a precautionary measure against the spread of corona. The central government has also issued standard guidelines for the opening of schools. Following this, various states and union territories are consulting on the opening of schools.
In this context, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan has announced that the schools will reopen on November 2. During a video consultation meeting held in Amravati today, Jagan Mohan said that classes should be conducted one day for students in classes 1,3,5,7 and another day for students in classes 2, 4, 6 and 8.
Classes should be held only once every three days, perhaps if the school has more than 750 students. Schools should operate only on the morning shift. Jagan Mohan also advised that lunch should be provided to the students. He said the system would be implemented only in November and decisions would be taken in December to suit the situation, adding that online classes should be taken for students who do not want to go to school.
Jagan Mohan, who directed the collectors to complete the project by November 15, said it should be inspected once in two days and the project should be rolled out in 91 NABARD schools.
