Delhi schools set to continue online classes after summer break
New Delhi[ maha media ] While schools in Delhi will reopen after the summer break next month, classes are likely to continue to be conducted virtually, amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.
Officials at both government and private schools said that with infections surging in the national capital, chances of calling students to school are bleak for July.
While junior classes (nursery to class 8) enjoyed a summer break from May 11, classes for the rest shut from May 29. With the country going into lockdown to contain the spread of the virus on March 25, schools too were shut.
Schools switched to learning via video conferencing, recorded video and audio lectures over WhatsApp, and activities on emails.
Both the CBSE and the NCERT are revising the syllabi and the assessment process for the academic year 2020-21 in view of the disruption brought about by the pandemic. Several private schools in Delhi are conducting teachers’ training programmes next week to prepare them for online classes.
