Delhi schools to reopen for Classes 10, 12 from Jan 18

Thursday, 14 January 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

In view of CBSE board exams, the Delhi Government has allowed all schools outside Covid-19 containment zones here to reopen for Classes 10 and 12 from January 18, officials of the Directorate of Education said on Wednesday.

However, it made clear that physical attendance is not compulsory and students will attend schools only with consent of parents.

Schools in Delhi would reopen after a gap of 10 months since March 2020 due to the pandemic followed by the lockdown.

“Keeping in view CBSE board exams, permission is being granted for schools to reopen for Classes 10 and 12 from January 18 for practicals, project work and counselling. Students will be called with parent’s consent and will not be bound to come,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted.
