Gujarat Primary school Reopen News:- Schools across the country have been closed since mid-March, even before the coronavirus lockdown was imposed. On Monday (October 5), the Education Ministry issued guidelines for their reopening.

Does this mean what students actually experience will vary depending on where they go to school when are schools reopening? What changes for students amid Covid-19?

For instance, Delhi has decided against bringing back students until the end of the month, despite the union government’s go-ahead. Uttar Pradesh, on the other hand, has announced a phased reopening but has left the final decision to the districts, based on the local Covid-19 situation.

According to senior officers in the Education Ministry, the union government had already indicated its preference last month, when the Home Ministry permitted senior students of Classes 9 to 12 to meet their teachers in schools voluntarily.

However, if a state were to decide to bring back the youngest students first, the Education Ministry will not interfere, a senior officer told The Indian Express.

And what about the staff?

As far as possible, parents will be encouraged to use their personal transport to drop children to school. Aged teachers and staff, and those living in containment zones will not be allowed to come in.

What about assessments?

According to the Education Ministry’s guidelines, for at least two to three weeks after reopening, schools will not conduct any assessment. Even when they do, the pen-and-paper text format will be discouraged for students across all grades to “ensure the emotional well-being of the students”.

What about school assessments for students?

“Assessments in the form of role plays, choreography, class quiz, puzzles and games, brochure designing, presentations, journals, portfolios, etc., may be preferred over routine pen-paper testing,” the Education Ministry’s guidelines state
