CISCE class 10, class 12 school reopen date: In a major development, the Chief Executive and Secretary at Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) has written to all chief ministers to allow schools to reopen partially from January, especially for students of class 10th and 12th who will be appearing for their board examinations.
The CISCE has also written to the Chief Election Commissioner of India to share the poll schedule of the states where elections are due in April and May to avoid any clash between the CISCE class 10, class 12 examination and election dates.
CISCE class 10, class 12 school reopen date: What Official said
"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all schools have been closed from March 2020 till date. However, despite the closure, most of our schools have continued with the teaching and learning process in an online, offline or blended manner, as indicated by a survey conducted by CISCE on the status of online teaching, assessment and completion of syllabus," PTI reported quoting Gerry Arathoon, the Chief Executive of the CISCE.
How students will utilise opportunity
"For the final run-up to the examinations, CISCE has requested the chief ministers of all state governments and UTs to allow schools to reopen partially, specifically for the students of classes 10 and 12 from January, 2021," he further said.
"With the students physically attending school, this time will be utilised for practical work, project work, SUPW work and for doubt clearing lessons. This will be extremely beneficial to the students who will now get the time to interact directly with their teachers," the report said, quoting Arathoon.
CISCE class 10, class 12 school reopen guidelines
If allowed to reopen, the schools will be informed to follow the directives of the state government regarding COVID-19 and to conform to the safety guidelines and the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) of the health department to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Chief Executive said.
"CISCE has also requested the Chief Election Commissioner of India to share the election dates of the states that are due to have their elections in the months of April - May next year," he said.
CISCE class 10, class 12 school Schedule
"This will enable CISCE to finalise the schedules for ICSE-Class 10 and ISC-Class 12 year 2021 examinations and to ensure that there are no clash of dates, interruption of the examinations or any inconvenience that may be faced by the candidates taking these examinations," he added.
Schools across the country were closed in March to contain the spread of COVID-19 and partially reopened in some states from 15 October. Many states have still not allowed the schools to reopen.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) too is yet to take a decision on the schedule for conducting board exams next year. In a recent clarification, the Central board has rejected claims suggesting online exams.
