The situations have become tough for all the schools due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Undoubtedly, almost all schools are facing a financial crisis.
Our school is in a remote tribal-dominated village of Jharkhand. We often have a financial crisis as we impart free education to the many underprivileged students. We charge only a meager amount of fees to the students, who belong to financially stable families to some extent.
National lockdown owing to Coronavirus pandemic made us financially dormant. The Education Minister of Jharkhand Jagannath Mahato has instructed all the private schools of Jharkhand not to charge fees for three months (i.e., April May and June ).
Several private schools raised voice against the decision and started sending reminders to collect fees.
We had held discussions with our School Management Committee in this regard. As we are well aware of the fact that lockdown has put many rural people on the verge of poverty. In view of this undeniable fact, the decision has been taken unanimously to exempt three months’ fees ( i.e., April, May and June), it will definitely relax our students’ parents in this pandemic situation.
For this I sincerely appeal to our students’ parents to pay the previous dues at their earliest convenience so as to meet the essential needs of our school.
