The decision to start school-colleges on November 23 was postponed after Koro became uncontrollable after the Diwali festivities in the state. However, with the daily corona cases in the state now hovering around 1,000 instead of 1,500, school-colleges are likely to start in January. All schools and colleges are getting indications that they will start from January 15.  A meeting of the High Power Committee will be held under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister. After this meeting a decision will be taken to start a school-college.

Schools and parents have to take care of these things

Sanitation facility has to be provided in every campus before starting school-colleges.
Students should be provided with thermal gun checking, sanitizer and soap arrangements for hand washing.

Social distance should be maintained in the classrooms and in the school-college complex. Not only that, the mask should be used compulsorily.

Following the SOP of the Government of India, the online education system provided by the schools and colleges in the state will remain the same.

The SOP will be applicable to all government, grant-in-aid, and self-financed schools, Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Social Justice, and Empowerment Department as well as Adi Jati Vikas Department schools of all the boards in the state.

From November 23, Std-9 to 12 schools as well as PG, Medical-Paramedical and undergraduate final year classes will start in the state.

The government will announce later to take appropriate decision in time to start the academic work of the remaining classes-standards.

Student attendance at school is not mandatory.

Institutions must also obtain the written consent of the student's parents or guardians to attend school.

The principal-principal will have to arrange for the students to come in stages so that there is no overcrowding in the school-college campus.

For this purpose, the state government has also asked to make arrangements for Odd-Even i.e. three days in a week for Std.

It is also suggested that students come to school on the scheduled days of the week and do homework assignments on the remaining days.

It is also instructed not to play sports or any other group activity on the field of mass prayer.
