Vali Sammati Patrak for Std 9 to std 12 Students in Unlock 4
Even in Unlock 4, the central government has decided not to open schools and colleges in the country but has given a waiver to students of 9th to 12th standard.
New Delhi: The Union Home Ministry has issued guidelines for Unlock-4. Rules have also been laid down for opening schools and colleges in Unlock-4. Students and their parents who have been waiting for schools to open for a long time have once again been disappointed. Schools, colleges, coaching classes and other educational institutions will be closed, the new guideline said, keeping Corona in mind. However, 9th to 12th standard and college students will be able to go to school voluntarily outside the contest zone. This means that students can go to college if they want, there will be no obligation to attend college.
The Unlock-4 guideline states that from September 21, 50 per cent of teaching staff in state and union territory schools may be allowed to attend school. These staff can come to the school for online teaching. All schools, colleges, coaching and other educational institutions will be closed during this time. Students of standard 9-12 will be able to go to school with the permission of their parents.
Parental permission required
Under the new rules, students from standard 9 to 12 outside the containment zone are allowed to go to school to seek guidance from teachers. However, this is only possible when students seek the permission of their parents or guardians. Schools cannot force students to attend classes. It will be up to the students whether they want to go or not.
Online education will get a boost
Schools, colleges, educational and coaching institutes will be closed for the time being. The guidelines state that after in-depth discussions with the states and union territories, it has been decided that schools, colleges, educational and coaching institutes will remain closed till September 30. Permission to run online / distance learning will remain the same and will be promoted. The State and Union Territories may allow themselves to call up 50 per cent teaching and non-teaching staff for online teaching / tele-counseling and related work in schools there.
