Bihar government has issued guidelines for opening of educational institutions in the state from January 4. Schools from Class 9th onwards, colleges and coaching institutes are permitted to allow only 50 percent of students. They have been asked to call students in batches on alternative days.
Principal Secretary Education Sanjay Kumar said students will be allowed to attend the physical classes only after the written consent of their parents or guardians. The educational institutions have to make arrangements for online classes for those who do not wish to attend the physical classes. All educational institutions are facing closure since March 15 owing to nationwide lockdown triggered by Covid-19.
