By Aaron Humes:While secondary schools generally can reopen on October 5, some may reopen earlier.

Chief Education Officer Dr Carol Babb said that certain schools having satisfied the Ministry of Education that they can accommodate all students by distance learning, those schools may begin on September 22, after the Independence Day holiday. Technical and vocational education returns on that date as well.

The Ministry will provide specific devices but each school must ensure each of their students have one.

Some training will be available for teachers on online learning.

Deputy Chief Education Officer Cecilia Smith said parents must as much as possible get involved in their children’s education from ABC to UB and called on teachers to ensure what they send home is understandable to parents and guardians.

Having lost as much as five months to the pandemic, it is important that according to Smith, the material produced must reflect what was not properly delivered from April to June but also their expectations for their next classes.

Whenever face to face instruction resumes, diagnostic assessments will be undertaken to look at where students are.

If you have any questions, contact the nearest District Education Center or the Administrator of your child’s school.
