J&K schools allowed to resume limited in-person teaching for classes 10th, 12th


The schools have been permitted to resume in-person classes for the twin classes subject to vaccination and testing of staff and students and strict adherence to COVID SOPs.



Srinagar Sept 12 : 


The Jammu and Kashmir government on Sunday allowed limited in-person teaching at schools for classes 10 and 12 subject to COVID-19 vaccination and testing of staff and students.

The decision was taken by the State Executive Committee of the Department of Disaster Management Relief Rehabilitation and Reconstruction chaired by Chief Secretary, Dr Arun Kumar Mehta to review the overall COVID-19 situation in J&K.

While the SEC said there was a need to continue with the existing COVID-19 containment measures in the UT in view of the uneven trend in the daily reported cases, it permitted limited physical class work for 12th standard students not exceeding 50 % attendance on a given day for vaccinated staff and students.

However, the respective school administrations have been asked to obtain consent from parents and students willing to attend the classes. 

Besides, the school premises should be thoroughly sanitized while a proper screening of staff and students regarding vaccination should be done at the school gate, the SEC directed.
