Abu Dhabi has announced the first launch of the first Virtual Charter School to provide continued education for students who have been affected by the pandemic.
It's an initiative of Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek), in partnership with Horizon Private School.
It will offer online classes to students within the emirate whose families have been hit by the ongoing pandemic.
Adek announced that 579 students from 15 different nationalities have already been enrolled in the virtual school.
In a pioneering extension of the Charter Schools initiative, which offers a third education model based on public-private partnership, the online platform is initially offering the Ministry of Education curriculum.
