Schools in Jaipur & other Rajasthan districts to reopen only for teachers from June 7!

While academic session begins on Monday in Rajasthan, decision regarding students' attendance will be taken after the pandemic threat subsides

The Directorate of Secondary Education has instructed all schools in Rajasthan to commence the new academic session (2021-2022) from Monday, that is June 7. This day will coincidentally also mark the reopening of educational institutes across the state, for teachers. Only 50% of the teaching staff is permitted to work from schools while the decision regarding students' attendance will be taken only after the pandemic threat subsides, read reports.

Schools cannot compel teachers to work from campus until public transport opens completely

While teachers will be allowed to work from campus, their attendance shall also be governed by the degree of ease in lockdown in their respective districts. At the same time, the Rajasthan government has ordained that no school can hold compulsion or pressurise staffers to attend schools until public transport completely reopens. This decision has been taken in the interest of the teachers who undertake intra-district travel to reach their schools.

It may be noted here that the Rajasthan government had previously declared to pass class 9 and 11 students without exams due to the widespread COVID infections. Similarly, students of younger grades have also been promoted to successive classes. In a recent development, the Rajasthan Board exams for classes 10 and 12 were also nullified in wake of the pandemic surge.

The Education Minister has tasked the Department of Education and Rajasthan Board to collectively devise the evaluation policy and the marking criteria to promote these students. Any student who is dissatisfied with the marks granted by this formula will be allowed to appear for the examinations when the situation favours.
