NEW DELHI: Kendriya Vidyalayas across the country have resumed face-to-face teachings for various classes as per the guidelines issued by the Home Ministry and State Governments.

KVs started opening from the month of October in a phased manner.

According to the data compiled on February 11 by the Ministry of Education, from all the KVs, an average of 42% Students of Class 9, 65% Students of Class 10, 48% Students of Class 11 and 67% Students of Class 12 are physically attending classes all over the Country.

These figures are dynamic and trends indicate consistent increase every day, Ministry sources said.

Face-to-face classes for class 1 to 8 have also been started in some KVs where State Governments have permitted to open Schools for junior grades.

Regular contact with the Parents and Guardians is being established by the Schools in case of any apprehension from students/parents. Students are being permitted with the prior consent of their guardians.

The SOPs issued by the State and Central Governments are being followed completely in view of the Corona Pandemic, the sources added.

All KVs are clearly advised to follow staggered timings for the students of various classes and ensure adequate safety measures including maintenance of proper physical distance in the classrooms.

However, for students who are not attending the School, the provision of online classes is also running. Students are also in touch with their teachers through various digital platforms, the Ministry clarified.
