The opening of schools in Rajasthan has been postponed. The decision to resume work will be made next week by the state government.
Rajasthan State Education Minister Govind Singh Dotasra, announcing the 12th grade results on Saturday, said a decision to reopen the school in the state would be made in the next two to three days. The decision on the opening date will soon be made by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot.
The state government, after discussing all aspects at a government committee meeting, decided to postpone the opening of schools until further notice. Earlier, the state government decided to open schools from August 2, 2021.
Govind Singh Dotashra shared a tweet about this. He wrote: “After discussing all aspects at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers committee set up to prepare a detailed SOP for the opening of the school, the Chief Minister @ ashokgehlot51 will decide on the date and nature of the opening of the school. Both the safety and education of children are a priority for our government. “
The decision to reopen schools will be made after the committee prepares detailed Standard Operating Procedures. All SOPs must be supported by state schools, which may include wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, heat scans, and using disinfectants.
