Mumbai: Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray has given consent to reopen offline schools for classes 1 to 12 in the state, Varsha Gaikwad, state Education Minister, said on Thursday.

Wherever COVID-19 cases have been reduced, the schools will reopen from January 24.

Earlier, reports suggested that schools in Maharashtra may open by January 27, 2022. The parents’ union and several ministers had submitted proposals to CM Uddhav Thackeray and his office to consider reopening schools as students were suffering massive learning losses. Following the demands, schools in Maharashtra have been allowed to reopen.

The Maharashtra government is the first in the country to allow the reopening of schools due to the third wave of the pandemic. Schools and colleges in several states were closed (as per the conditions) for offline classes from the first week of January 2022.

The decision to reopen Maharashtra’s schools has also been left to the local authorities. This means that authorities like the BMC and others for the Mumbai district will take the final decision on reopening and closing schools in their areas.

Schools and stakeholders must note that detailed guidelines in this respect will be released soon.

Meanwhile, students must keep in touch with their schools and wait for a final word from them, before going for offline classes.
