Classes 9 & 11 in Karnataka to reopen fully from February 1 | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: After grades 10 and 12, the Karnataka government has decided to resume regular, full-day classes for students of grades 9 and 11 from February 1.
A decision to this effect was taken after a meeting of education department officers with the Technical Advisory Committee on Thursday afternoon. Primary and secondary education minister S Suresh Kumar said the decision on resuming the rest of the classes will be made after a meeting of the technical committee in the second week of February.
Will go ahead with committee advice: Min
Full-day classes will help teachers complete the syllabus. There have been requests to reopen all classes, including Vidyagama for classes 1-5. During our discussion with the technical committee, we sought reopening of class 8 too. But the committee said we should wait to see how this decision progresses,” said the minister.
Attendance is not compulsory. Students are free to opt between online and offline classes.“We do not want any child not to get education. In Karnataka, Covid has come under control with only 400-500 cases being reported every day and it is in single digits in some districts. It’s with great effort we achieved it. We will go ahead with the advice of the technical committee,” he said.
About the fee issue, the minister said: “We understand the situation of parents. At the same time, in various private schools, teachers have no salary or get a part of it. Many have lost jobs. While making sure that parents’ interest is protected and teachers do not lose their livelihood, we will take steps. Will hold a meeting with the CM for this.”
