Guwahati: The Odisha government has decided to reopen schools for Classes 10 and 12 students from July 26. The decision will be applicable to both government and private schools.
The government will issue proper Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) keeping in view the safety of the student and teaching staff by following the COVID guidelines.
The authority stated that due to the poor internet connectivity in many parts of the state only 40 per cent of the students were able to take benefit of the online teaching, while 60 per cent were not benefited properly.
“Due to the closing of the schools students have lost 150 regular teaching days of their academic year. However, online teaching will continue for all Classes including 10 and 12. Attending the physical Classes will be the decision of students,” the Principal Secretary said.
