The UAE announced on Tuesday that schools and higher educational institutions would be closed for four weeks starting on Sunday to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
In a statement released today, the Ministry said the decision comes as a proactive step that is consistent with mitigating the impact of such crises and a keenness to provide highest standards of safety within the school and higher education communities.
According to the decision, the spring vacation, initially scheduled to start on 29th March and run till 12th April, will instead start next Sunday. A pilot programme for distance education will be implemented during the last weeks of the vacation to ensure education continuity and to avoid any impact on school days.
The Ministry said the decision takes into consideration the interests of students and ensures that the distance education initiative is properly applied.
The Ministry of Education termed what is being circulated on social media and across media outlets about its intention to end the academic year and continue the distance e-learning system till the end of the school year as ''inaccurate.'
"All ongoing examinations of the board for classes 10 and 12, being held in examination centres in India and abroad, and scheduled between 19.03.2020 to 31.03.2020 (both dates inclusive), shall be rescheduled after 31st March, 2020," a statement by CBSE read.
The Ministry, however, said that schools are instructed to allocate 3 minutes of each lesson to educate children about the the virus and to make them aware of the precautions they all should take to protect themselves from the virus.
