The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has finally allowed teachers working in its schools across the country to work from home till July 31 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The schools had reopened on June 22 after the summer vacations ended.
Teachers posted in Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) in Lucknow and Varanasi region have been asked to conduct classes online from home.
According to a letter dated July 7, signed by KVS joint commissioner (academic) Piya Thakur, deputy commissioners (DC) of all regions have been directed to issue the guidelines for phased re-opening of KVs and ask teachers to conduct online classes.
The letter follows the guidelines issued by the department of education and literacy on July 6, wherein schools have been directed to be closed till July 31.
The decision was also welcomed by principals since teachers were not comfortable coming to school given the rising number of Covid-19 cases. Conducting online classes is more convenient for them.
