The Haryana government has approved the return of offline sessions in both government and private schools in the state, citing a decrease in Covid cases. Offline lectures for students in Classes 9-12 will begin on July 16th, according to a directive issued by the Directorate School Education. Offline lectures will resume on July 23 for Classes 6–8. According to the directive, a decision on whether or not to resume offline courses for students in Classes 1 through 5 will be made at a later date. Online classes will continue, and students who desire to take them will be able to do so, according to the directive. It goes on to say that students will only be permitted to go to school if their parents give their written consent. No student would be forced to attend school's offline sessions, according to the directive. The number of Covid cases in Haryana has decreased, according to Haryana Education Minister Kanwar Pal, who also stated that the decision to reopen schools was made with the circumstances in mind. If the situation remains under control, he added, a decision would be made on resuming offline classes for younger students. The minister went on to say that at schools, social distance standards would be maintained, and that plans to restart classes had been made. As the schools reopen, the directive stipulates that the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) published last year governing physical distancing and other regulations will be in effect. It goes on to say that students, parents, and instructors have access to a video that demonstrates how the offline classes would be performed.
