The Goa education department on Friday allowed high schools to conduct 11th and 12th class examinations offline.
On Friday, the Goa education department allowed high schools to conduct classes 11 and 12 in offline mode. In a statement issued during the day, Bhushan Savaikar, director of education, said that requests to conduct the tests in offline mode had come from many schools and that they were being allowed on condition that epidemic rules be strictly adhered to.
“Only vaccinated staff will be allowed on school premises. Those who cannot produce a vaccine certificate will be allowed to create a negative report after the RTPCR test. Such a report will be valid for seven days and a new report will be made after the seventh day, “the circular said.
It added that the number of students, who always had to wear a mask, would be limited to 50 per cent of the classroom capacity, including seating arrangements, keeping in mind the social distance.
“Every student and staff will have their body temperature checked before entering the school premises, which will be sanitized daily before opening,” the notice added.
