CISCE TO RECONSIDER ITS DECISION TO REOPEN SCHOOLS FROM SEPTEMBER 21

The State Government of West Bengal has recently announced that all the educational institutions in West Bengal would continue to remain shut till 30th September. Soon after the Supreme Court’s decision, CISCE (Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations) who have previously decided to reopen educational institutions including schools from 21st September, is now intending to reconsider its decision.

Before the West Bengal Government announced the reopening of schools, the CISCE on Wednesday had sent a notification for a partial reopening of schools and proposed that the time be used to make up the loss incurred on practical and project work.

The council chief executive and secretary, Gerry Arathoon on Wednesday said that a meeting will be held soon. Also, a fresh notice will be issued in a day or two specifically for the state of Bengal. He added that ISC and ICSE students can’t perform their practicals at home. So, when the guidelines were issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, the council agreed to assist students to perform their practical work and practice the same.
