Schools reopening

Education Minister Dipu Moni on Sunday said that the country's educational institutions will be ready to host students by September 9, before finally reopening three days later - bringing to an end what Unicef has called the world's second-longest schools closure due to Covid-19.

“Ministry officials will complete field inspections within September 9 to observe whether the institutions are fully prepared to open their doors for students,” she told reporters after an inter-ministerial meeting at the Cabinet Division.

“No one will be allowed entry to school and colleges without a mask after reopening. The parents will have to play a vital role in this,” she added.

The decision to reopen all the primary, secondary and higher secondary level educational institutions on September 12 was finalised at Sunday’s meeting.
