According to a new circular issued by the ministry, heads of the schools can decide on whether to organise online classes to support or replace school classrooms when students cannot go to schools due to a force majeure event or circumstance.
“Online classes should ensure quality regarding syllabus, teachers and devices. The ministry will conduct regular checks, tests, and assessment,” the circular said.
Many schools nationwide have recently organised online learning following the lock-downs due to COVID-19 outbreaks. However, most schools were not well-prepared for these types of classes.
With this circular, schools will have directions to offer better quality online training.
