Delhi schools, colleges, and coaching centres will remain closed due to the recent spike in the Covid-19 cases. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia who also holds the education portfolio conducted an online interaction with students on Saturday to announce that all educational institutions will remain closed.

Delhi Government school class 9 and 11 exams have now been postponed till April 20 and new dates for exams will be announced soon. The education minister was responding via social media to questions raised by the students.

When asked about the CBSE practical exams, the minister said: “We have asked the heads of schools to talk to the CBSE examiners and move the dates of the remaining CBSE practical exams forward. Schools have been asked to defer the remaining practical exams till April 20 for now.”

There were questions regarding the presence of teachers during the period of closure of schools and colleges in Delhi. Sisodia announced that there will not be any centralised directive in this regard and schools will take a call on whether teachers will have to report at the school for online classes, or conduct their classes remotely.

“We have left the decision to individual schools, the principals and staff bodies to decide on whether teachers should be called to school or not. Schools can decide whether teachers will conduct their online classes from school or home, or whether they require a limited number of teachers at school, Sisodia said.

“There will be no centralised directive from the government on this,” he added.
