3-day work week for Govt, Govt-approved schools


The Education Ministry will continue to operate government and government-approved private schools three days a week until 5 August.

Accordingly, academic activities in schools will function on Monday (1), Tuesday (2), and Thursday (4).

In addition, schools will continue online academic activities on Wednesdays and Fridays where schools will remain closed.

Arranging flexible timetables for students and teachers will be done to adapt to the situation. Schools that do not need transport facilities can function on Wednesdays and Fridays after coming into agreements with principals, teachers and zonal educational directors.

However, transport facilities for children and teachers will be provided and current bus fare is applicable for the service.

The Ministry in a special statement said the decision was taken at the discussion held at the ministry on 30 July. The discussion was held online using zoom technology, with the participation of the ministry Secretary, additional secretaries, the Director General of the National Institute of Education (NIE), directors, and provincial directors of education.
