By BBN Staff: Today marks the official launch of the 2020/2021 school year, for pre-school and primary schools countrywide; however, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, only teachers have shown up to their classes.
As per the directive of the Ministry of Education (MOE), teachers have prepared home-based learning packages for students and have worked out a means of distribution for parents and guardians to pick up the materials. Those materials will later be dropped off for teachers to grade and issue a new batch of materials. The system will remain in place until authorities feel comfortable to let the children back into school, though they warned that the school experience will be dramatically changed due to COVID-19.
High School is expected to reopen on October 5 using online classes, and the MOE has pledged to ensure that students have devices and data to participate in those classes, with over 6,000 students expected to benefit from the Ministry’s assistance. Coming into the opening of the new school year, Chief Education Officer Dr. Carol Babb, said that there are doubts that there will be any sittings of the Primary School Examination (PSE) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) this year.
