The Ministry of Education announced on Thursday its plan to restart schools by June 13, 2020.

Pupils preparing for the preparatory and secondary certificate will be the first to resume lessons said Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education, Adel Jumaa, noting that they will spend two months back at school before taking their exams.

Jumaa confirmed that the decision was approved by the scientific advisory committee for managing the Covid-19 pandemic and the anti-Covid-19 supreme committee.

Schools only managed to give 41% of the overall curriculum for this academic year, due to delays in the start of the school year, and Haftar's offensive against the capital, according to the undersecretary.

Accordingly, the decision to transfer or calculate the average of the two terms cannot be implemented, therefore, the ministry decided to restart schools instead," Jumaa added.

"To ensure pupils are studying in a safe environment, education institutions will be provided with the necessary hygiene and sterilizing supplies, periodically," said Jumaa.

The undersecretary also announced that the Education Minister has formed a committee to supervise and monitor the restarting of schools in coordination with the National Center for Disease Control and to ensure that all measures recommended by the relevant bodies for the safety of the children at the education institutions are implemented.
