The nursery to class 8 students in Delhi Government schools will be promoted to the next class according to the latest announcement. The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia has released this notice on Monday. This decision has been taken by the Government of Delhi under the policy of no-detention. No exams will be organized for the students from nursery to 8th class due to the lockdown effect.
The notice further says that the Government will commence online classes of 2 subjects for the 12th class students. The Minister also said that they will take a proper decision regarding the promotion of 9th to 11th students after consulting CBSE authorities. The Deputy CM had to take this decision due to the COVID-19 outbreak across the nation.
We already knew that the Central Government has announced a 21-day country-wide lockdown from 24th March 2020 midnight. With an intention not to disturb the education system due to the lockdown, the Government has decided to provide online education. As per the decision, the nursery to 8th class students will be given specific activities via an SMS or IVR. All the Government school students need to finish the activities with the help of the elders.
Manish Sisodia further said that the teachers of various classes will communicate with the students through the phone. For the 12th class students, the online classes will begin in the 1st week of April. To purchase internet data packs, the 12th class students will be given necessary funds.
