Schools in Mysuru flag off admission process | Mysuru News – Times of India


MYSURU: Although there is no word yet from the government on resumption of classes for students below grade 5, several private schools in Mysuru district have kicked off the process of admissions — especially for Class 1 — for the next academic year (2021-22).
The decision comes even while the department of public (DPI) is yet to notify the last working date for the current academic year (2020-21). Panduranga, deputy director of public instruction, revealed the department has not given permission for admissions to begin. “If someone lodges a complaint, we will look into it,” he said.
With the government yet to take a concrete stand on reopening schools or allowing on-campus Vidyagama lessons for lower classes, the primary education sector is in limbo.
However, some private schools in Mysuru district are not only accepting admissions, but hope to wrap up the enrolment process by the end of March. Last year’s fee structure was retained for fresh admissions.
Parents say several schools are approaching them with ‘early bird offers’ for admission to class I. School authorities are using their network with nursery schools to contact parents. They are also posting advertisements on various platforms.
“Our concern is whether the state government will allow regular classes for lower grades next year as the fear of Covid-19 is still on everyone’s mind,” said Shyamala Aiyer, a resident from Vidyaranyapuram. “Many schools are openly issuing applications for the new academic year. ”
A DPI official said: “The problem is no parent is ready to file a written complaint. It is not possible to track activities of all schools all the time. This is the challenge,” the official said. He said the government is dilly-dallying on reopening schools because there is no clarity on the pandemic.
CBSE, ICSE and State Private Schools Management Association (CISPMAM) president Sudhakar S Shetty said because of the pandemic, the association had asked all schools to build confidence among students and parents on academic activities for the next year. “Some schools have launched the admission process as part of these activities,” he said.
