Kohima, May 24 (EMN):
The department of School Education has informed that online classes for students in Nagaland would be extended to the lower classes by next month.

Principal Director of School Education, Shanavas C said that the department is planning to “extend it (online classes) to Class 5, 6, 7” by June in addition to ongoing online classes covering classes 8 to 12.

The official informed that there is “very less chance that school will be opening in the first week of June.”

The department has, therefore, decided to extend the online classes to these three more classes, the officer said.

Classes will not be opening mostly because schools have been turned into quarantine centres in most parts of the state, he added.

Further, he informed that the progress of the online classes in the state was going ‘fine.’

As of now, online classes are being provided to students of classes 8, 9, 10, and 12.

In regard to the declaration of results of HSLC and HSSLC examination, the principal director said that ‘it is almost ready’ and would be out soon.

Earlier in April, Chairman of the Nagaland Board of School Education, Asano Sekhose, in a notification had stated that, in view of the lockdown being imposed across the country due to Covid-19 pandemic, the process of result preparation for the HSLC and HSSLC examinations 2020 had been put on hold.

It further informed that the results could be expected by the end of May 2020. However, the date of declaration of HSLC and HSSLC examinations 2020 results would be intimated before hand, it had said.
