Chandigarh, October 14
A day after the UT Education Department issued orders for opening schools for all classes, private schools have started the process of taking consent from the parents. The consent is being taken for two things, if parents are willing to send their children to school and if they need transportation facilities.
After receiving the consent from parents, the school management will assess the number of students willing to come to school. It has also been decided to follow the administration’s instructions and continue with a blended mode of teaching (both offline and online), which the schools are already doing for senior classes. “We have started taking consent from the parents. I think, within two days, the situation will be clear on how many parents are willing to send their children to school. For junior classes, the response (for sending children) is expected to be good. Meanwhile, till further orders, we will take classes in both offline and online mode,” said HS Mamik, president, Independent School Association (ISA).
On October 7, The Tribune had reported the opening of schools for all classes as the ISA officials discussed the current situation with the UT Adviser Dharam Pal. Meanwhile, many parents continue to raise questions over the decision. “The administration could have waited for children’s vaccination before making any decision. The UT Administration should carry special drives to assess the Covid management quality at local schools,” said Anujm, a parent.
