Reopen classes 10 and 12 on January 1; classes 9 and 11 on January 15: Karnataka Technical Advisory Committee

BENGALURU: The Technical Advisory Committee for Covid-19 in Karnataka has recommended that classes for grades 10 and II PU can start from January 1. This will be followed by classes for grades 11 and I PU from January 15. Vidyagama in its new form– classes in small groups on campus– for classes 6-9 can also be held from January 1.
The committee held a meeting on Thursday to discuss issues on the reopening of schools. The dates will be discussed with the chief minister and finalised after the Standard Operating procedures are in place. Thursday’s meeting was attended by the education minister and department officials.
The committee has also recommended that the state should wait for some more time before rolling out Vidyagama for primary classes. Sources point out that the government will also wait for the High Court order on the same.
According to the recommendations, students should come to school with a consent letter from the parents. The consent later should also have an undertaking that students have no symptoms like sore throat, cold or cough. Those students who have any of these symptoms should not attend classes.
