All educational institutions in Assam will reopen in a phased manner from next month with physical classes in colleges, universities and technical institutions as well as for class 9 students to resume from October 1. Offline classes for students of classes 1 to 8 will begin from October 19, an education department notification said on Tuesday.
Parents or guardians are required to give their written consent for their wards to attend offline classes, it said. The institutions will also have to ensure the continuation with online classes, it added. However, educational institutions in containment zones will not reopen until further orders. The decision to reopen the educational institutions has been taken given the improving Covid-19 situation, the notification said.
For students from classes 1 to 8, classes will be held three days a week on alternate days. There cannot be more than 30 students in a section and hostels will not be reopened for students of these classes. Classes for students from classes 9 to 12 will be conducted on a day-to-day basis.
