Delhi Schools to make ‘micro plans’ to reopen after lockdown
NEW DELHI: The Directorate of Education is gearing up to re-open schools with a "preparatory planning framework” in Delhi.
The directorate has released a detailed circular discussing “micro plan at the school level” which will be followed to ensure the reopening of schools.
According to the circular, the micro plan has to be formulated keeping in mind the enrollment, availability of human resources and infrastructure at school. The plan will be implemented as and when the official decision is taken to restart the schools.
The head of schools, or the HoS, in consultation with the teachers and members of the School Management Committee, will be required to develop the micro plan.
The plan has to address crucial issues like tracking of each student, trauma support for children and the estimate of students willing to join the school in July. Training and support of teachers and SMC have to be included in the plans.
The schools also need to figure out an academic goal and focus for the students studying in primary, upper primary, secondary and senior secondary.
If needed, the schools can raise a proposal for additional resources to execute the plan.
Mentor teachers of the school and Teacher Development Coordinators have been asked to assist in preparing the plans. As per the official orders, the HoS will submit the micro plan of their respective school by June 5 to the deputy directors of education (DDE).
The deputy chief minister, Manish Sisodia will assess the plans with the district DDEs immediately after the submission.
In order to initiate this planning process, the facilitator of the Cluster Leadership Development Programme will conduct a training session of 10 HoS of their respective cluster. A detailed schedule has been prepared for conducting the sessions.
While Delhi is in the planning stage, a spokesperson of the Ministry of Home Affairs tweeted on Tuesday that all schools are prohibited from opening for now.
However, the ministry has opened up 15,000 schools to open for evaluation Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) answer sheets of Class 10 and 12 students.
Educational institutions across the country were shut down in March to curb the spread of coronavirus.
