Ministry of Education has prepared SOP for the re-opening of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayasbased on guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs & Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. All the precautionary measures like sanitization of the JNVs, arrangement for classes & stay of students in the hostel with social distancing and preparation of COVID management protocol to meet the emergency situations, etc. have been already taken care of by Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas.
On the basis of the SOP of the Ministry of Education, every school has also prepared its own SOP based on the SOP of the State Government and in consultation with the District Administration for effective management of COVID situation by constituting a task force. JNVs are well prepared to manage physical classes for the students for whom consent of the parent is available. In respect of other students, online classes will continue to avoid academic loss.
With regard to students being called for physical classes in a phased manner, directions of state administration will be strictly followed. Being a residential school, wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, frequent hand washing, and sanitization will be given utmost importance. Accordingly, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas will open for physical classes wherever State Government has allowed opening schools initially for Classes X & XII. Further directions will be given shortly in respect of other classes based on the availability of accommodation and devices to students.
Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas were closed for summer vacation after the outburst of the COVID-19 Pandemic in March-2020 after completing the term-end examinations. Efforts were made to train the teachers on the development of e-content and management of online classes and online assessment. Online classes started in all Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas w.e.f. 15th June 2020. Online assessments are also being conducted periodically. Students without devices for online education have been provided with textbooks, learning materials like assignments, question banks, etc, through special messenger/ parents/ post.
