Schools are likely to be opened for the students of Class IX to XII from September 15, subject to the Covid-19 situation in the state. At present, the schools are closed and online examinations are going on.

"The arrangements for Class IX to XII are already in place and the Education Department is ready with micro plans to open schools for Class V to VIII but it is for the state government to take the final call after reviewing Covid cases,'' said Director Higher Education Amarjeet Sharma.

There are 15,591 government schools in the state. If the government decides to open schools for Class V onwards, there would be no problem in the primary schools as only Class V students would come.

Social distancing norms could be followed in standalone middle schools while the students strength would be staggered. The students could be called on an odd-even arrangement.
