New Delhi, February 15

The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has resumed classes for its schools as per the guidelines issued by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and state governments across the country.

According to data compiled from all Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) till February 11, an average of 42 per cent of Class IX students, 65 per cent of Class X students, 48 per cent of Class XI students and 67 per cent of Class XII students have physically attended all classes.

Told to follow Covid guidelines

  • All Kendriya Vidyalayas have been explicitly instructed to ensure adequate safety measures, including maintenance of proper social distancing in classrooms for the students.
  • For students not coming to school, provision of online classes is there. The Parliamentary Standing Committee has suggested that the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan should open KVs abroad.

Students taking offline classes

  • Class IX 42%
  • Class X 65%
  • Class XI 48%
  • Class XII 67%

These figures are dynamic and trends indicate consistent increase every day. Face-to-face classes from I to VIII have also been started in some KVs where state governments have permitted to open schools for junior grades, the Education Ministry said today.

Regular contact with parents and guardians is being established by the schools in case of any apprehension. “Students are being permitted to attend classes with the prior consent of their guardians, it said,” adding that SOPs issued by the state and central governments are being followed completely in view of the Covid pandemic.

All KVs are clearly advised to follow staggered timings for the students of various classes and ensure adequate safety measures, including maintenance of proper physical distance in classrooms. KVs started opening from October in a phased manner.
