Chandigarh, April 9
The Chandigarh Education Department has extended the closure of schools till April 30 as Covid cases continue to rise in the city.
However, the department has not suspended offline examinations for Classes IX and XI. The school heads will conduct the offline examinations in two shifts and ensure that no more than 15 students are allowed to take exams in a classroom.
The Education Department has been conducting teacher training, which has become a cause of panic among teachers.
A government school teacher said: “The PISA seminar, which is being conducted by the Education Department, violates the Covid guidelines. Did the department take an approval of the Adviser before organising such a seminar and gathering more than 200 teachers at a venue?”
Rubinderjit Singh Brar, Director of School Education, UT, said: “This training is being undertaken by the CBSE as per the directions of the Ministry of Education for PISA-2021. All necessary protocols will be followed and teachers will be called in small groups.” — TNS
