Govt Curtails Online Classes To 30 mins for Pre-Primary, 90 mins for Primary Level

SRINAGAR: A day after Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha’s direction, the  Jammu and Kashmir Education Department Tuesday curtailed the online classes for Pre-Primary and Primary classes to 30 minutes and 90 minutes a day respectively

As per the new guidelines for the pre-primary students, the School Education Department has set the cap of 30 minutes a day to conduct the virtual classes.

For classes 1 to 12, the recommendation  to adopt/adapt the alternative academic calendar of NCERT has been suggested while for calluses 1 to 8 online synchronous learning may be undertaken for not more than two sessions of 30-45 minutes each on the days the States/UTs decide to have online classes for primary sections

For 9 to 12, the recommendation of online synchronous learning may be undertaken for not more than four sessions of 30-45 minutes each on the days the States/UTs decide to have online classes for primary sections.

The development comes in the wake of LG Manoj Sinha’s yesterday directing the school education department to lighten the homework load of students after a video of a six-year-old girl went viral who was seen demanding fewer online class duration.
