School college reopening news: The Centre has introduced major changes in the guidelines for the reopening of schools and colleges in the country and has thereafter issued the revised set of guidelines. As per the newly issued guidelines, the Centre has now given the liberty to the states to decide on the requirement of parental consent for the functioning of offline classes in educational institutions.

It is noteworthy that the previous guidelines, which were issued on October 5, 2020 had directed the States and Union Territories to mandatorily obtain parents' consent for calling students to the campus premises. The modified guidelines also underscored the sudden transition from online to offline classes.

In view of the same, the Centre has instructed the States and Union Territories to encourage their academic institutions to prepare bridge courses, which will facilitate the students in getting accustomed to the rapidly changing mode of education.

Its secondary objective is to avoid any further learning loss and subside all the hassles related to learning. The rules for reopening of schools, colleges and other academic institutions vary from state to state. As all the states have issued different Covid-19 SOPs respectively, the Centre has directed them to alter their reopening guidelines and bring them in line with the ones issued by the Centre.

Furthermore, resumption of academic activities in educational institutions is also aimed at identifying such students who might be facing hassles while shifting to the offline mode of education. Hence, pertaining to this, the Centre has advised the States and Union Territories to devise methods of additional intervention for the aid of such students.

Notably, the guidelines for the reopening of schools, colleges and universities were initially revised and released in December 2021. However, the spurting Covid-19 cases and the shutdown of educational institutions due to the same led to the delay in the implementation of these guidelines.
