According to reports, a delegation of the Private Schools Association called on Sindh Education Minister Syed Sardar Ali Shah during which a joint decision was taken in the meeting that schools across Sindh including Karachi would reopen from next Monday, August 30.
Teachers would be allowed to go to schools and prepare (for lectures), while private schools would have to submit staff and teacher vaccination reports.
Sources privy to the matter said that the meeting of the working committee would be held on Friday (August 27), after which notification to reopen the schools would be issued.
Earlier on August 20, addressing a press conference in Karachi, Syed Sardar said that only those schools would be allowed to resume classes where 100 per cent of teaching and non-teaching staffers have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
He added that educational institutions will be required to follow 50 per cent attendance policy in line with the Covid-19 SOPs to contain the spread of contagious disease.
