Monthly Newsletter | September 2021 | Volume 28
We are glad to present to you the September 2021 edition of the school 360 Newsletter.
With a sharp decline in the Covid-19 positive cases, the pandemic appears to be receding, thereby increasing the possibility of schools reopening in September. In fact, various state governments have decided to reopen the educational institutions in a phased manner from September 2021. Standard operating procedures (SOPs) have been released to this effect by prominent educational organisations and state governments. However, online or distance learning will continue to be an alternate mode of learning.
In this edition, we have included topics covering the reopening of schools, launch of key initiatives of NEP in August 2021, the concept of virtual school, Bombay High court’s directive to the Maharashtra government regarding fee-issue, the signing of agreement between the Delhi Government and International Baccalaureate board for a new state board and fresh guidelines issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority.
I hope you will find this edition of the newsletter informative and enrich us with your feedback
