On February 16, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the idea of introducing a “regional principle” for organizing the educational process. In particular, in regions where the incidence of Covid-19 is below a certain level, educational institutions will be able to start working in person. From Monday, February 22nd, grades 1-4 could return to their desks in such parts.
Students in grades 1-12 will be able to study full-time if in the administrative territory where the school is located, the incidence rate (the number of new cases per 100,000 people in two weeks) is less than 200.
The Ministry of Education would like this figure to be up to 400 for grades 1-3. According to the head of the department, Ilga Shuplinski, at the moment we are talking about psycho-emotional pressure in society.
The head of the Ministry of Health Daniel Pavluts noted that the department agrees with the regional principle proposed by the Ministry of Education. The Ministry of Health, however, is opposed to schools opening with an incidence of up to 400 cases.
Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins, however, after listening to the views, urged to support the resumption of full-time studies at the rate of up to 200. If the incidence increases, schools will again go to distance learning.
Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers agreed that in regions where the incidence rate allows it, grades 1-4 can return to their desks on February 22, and 5-12 grades – from March 1. On Thursday, February 18, a decision will be made on the final version of the terms.
