Students attending night school have been in a fix as the question to appear for board examinations in their respective schools and colleges have risen following the directive to permit students to appear for board examinations in the respective educational institutions.

As a result, the association of principals of night schools has written to the authorities seeking clarity on the matter.

Night schools do not have the infrastructure as they take their classes out of buildings of day schools. Moreover, night schools and colleges cater to students from underprivileged backgrounds who have to work during the day. According to reports, at least 6,000 SSC and HSC students from 136 such institutions in Mumbai are going to appear for their board exams this year.

On the other hand, earlier on March 17, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) issued an order asking all schools in its jurisdiction to discontinue the 50 per cent rotational attendance rule from March 17.

In addition, the civic body added that teachers will take their classes from home with the help of e-learning platforms until further orders. Due to the spike in cases of coronavirus, the BMC has directed all teachers of all mediums, all management, primary, secondary and higher secondary schools in the Mumbai Municipal Corporation area to stay at home and take the online classes till further orders.

While working from home, teachers and non-teaching staff will be required to record their daily work in a Google sheet or worksheet. Furthermore, the headmaster or the school management committee has been empowered to make decisions in this regard; if the presence of teachers in the school is required for the distribution of food grains under the school nutrition scheme.
