Delhi schools will be reopening for class 9-12 from September 1, while for classes 6-8 the offline classes will begin on September 8 in a phased manner.

Delhi’s Education Minister Manish Sisodia said that social distancing will be followed (keeping in mind the possibility of a third wave of COVID-19) and students will not be forced to attend the offline classes, and will also not be marked as absent, as per news agency ANI.


As per the news report, the decision was taken in a meeting led by Delhi Disaster Management of Authority (DDMA). The expert committee set up by the DDMA also recommended that schools can be reopened in a phased manner maintaining all the COVID protocols.

The Delhi government allowed offline classes for class 9-12 earlier this year. However, it was suspended due to the massive surge of COVID-19 cases in Delhi.
