GOA: Chief minister Pramod Sawant said the state government plans to reopen educational institutions for students of Classes IX, X, XI, XII and the final year graduation level in consultation with parent-teacher associations and headmasters’ associations. “Although we have not finalised this, we have initiated steps to begin after September 20,” Sawant told reporters during a virtual press conference.
The central government had recently announced that educational institutions could reopen from September 21 for students of Classes IX-XII and that attendance would be voluntary. While stating that Goa was the first state in the country to provide virtual training to teachers, Sawant said that online classes have already begun for students of Classes X and XII and higher education.
