A decision on the reopening of schools in Tamil Nadu will only be taken after suggestions are obtained from teachers, parents and students, according to Tamil Nadu School Education and Youth Welfare Minister K A Sengottaiyan.

The minister added that the final take on the matter will rest with state Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami adding that “On behalf of the School Education Department, suggestions will be obtained from parents, students and from Parents-Teachers Associations also about reopening of the schools in Tamil Nadu. They will be collected till this weekend.”

Practical examinations for classes 10 to 12 will be conducted and the schedule would be released soon. 

School education director S Kannappan said in a circular to chief educational officers, “The parents’ meetings should be held following the Covid-19 precautionary measures. In case there are more students in schools, the meetings should be conducted in different time slots.”

The director has asked block resource trainers, block education officers, district education officers to monitor the parents meetings at private schools and CBSE schools.
