The Andhra Pradesh Government on Friday announced reopening  of schools  for the 2021-22 academic year from August 16. The decision to reopen schools was long pending owing to  the ongoing Covid-19 second wave.

On Friday, a high-level meeting was convened by  Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy where the decision was taken.

A CMO release said the government would also come out with detailed guidelines on August 16 on the implementation of the New Education Policy-2020.

The Chief Minister would dedicate to people the government schools refurbished under the first phase of Naadu-Nedu programme and also launch the second phase works on
August 16.

Classification of schools into six categories from PP-1 to Class 12 would be undertaken as per the NEP-2020.

The existing Anganwadis would be converted into satellite foundation schools, covering each habitation, the CMO release said.

The Chief Minister directed the Education Department officials to clearly spell out to all concerned why they were shifting to the NEP-2020.

"Create wide awareness, particularly among parents, on the benefits of NEP-2020. There should be no scope for any doubts or apprehensions," Jagan Mohan Reddy said.

He said the state government would spend Rs 16,000 crore for implementing the NEP-2020.This would rejuvenate the education system, he added.

The government also decided to award marks to Class X students, who were declared to have passed in 2020 and 2021,as final examinations could not be conducted due to thecoronavirus outbreak.

While 70 per cent weightage would be given to slip tests, 30 per cent would be for formative assessment for awarding the final marks.

Grades would be awarded as per the marks, the School Education Department officials told the Chief Minister.
