As part of a much-needed relief, the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has allowed teachers to deliver online lessons to all students from their homes or homes rather than reporting them to the school campus. This decision was made in accordance with the government’s instructions to suspend all regular classes for students and switch to e-learning mode for students. However, if teachers have to attend schools to organize online lessons, they run the risk of being exposed to contagion. To avoid this, KVS decided to allow teachers to teach lessons online at home, with safety, health and well-being being a top priority. This announcement was made by the Sangathana on Friday April 23rd.
In addition, for those states of the country where the respective state government has not imposed any restrictions on the exposure of physical classes, the KVS has entrusted the deputy commissioner of the region and the director of the school to ensure that all COVID-Se 19 protocols and behaviors will be followed in schools. In this regard, the memorandum states, “Wherever state governments have allowed physical classes, the DC and directors of the region must ensure that the proper COVID protocol is followed. In case of suspension of classes according to the COVID protocol, KVS (HQ) must always be informed. The communication goes on to say that the safety of students, teachers, and other staff must be paramount in any decision about organizing courses in an online format.
Apart from this, the KVS has also asked all school principals and administrators to ask their teachers to hold regular online parent-teacher meetings. At these meetings, students and parents should be aware of the “academic transactions” that take place during the online course. Additionally, teachers should use the meetings to educate students and parents on COVID-19 protocols and appropriate behaviors.
