School gates are to remain firmly shut as e-learning to continue for all students.
Distance learning across all public and private schools and higher education will remain in place until the end of the academic year.
The decision by the Ministry of Education is a part of the UAE Cabinet directive to ensure that the learning continues “…while maintaining the security and safety of our pupils and the school community.”
The ministry is also working on a strategy for end-of-year assessments. Academic institutions were initially closed in March of this year to limit the spread of COVID-19 but were scheduled to open by 5th April.
However, students and staff will have to continue delivering e-learning classes remotely through digital platforms till further announcements are made.
