In Chhattisgarh, a virtual school is being set up so that children’s education is not affected due to Corona crisis. This virtual school will operate under the Chhattisgarh State Open School.
All schools have been closed for the past several days due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In such circumstances, to impart online education to the children affected by Covid crisis and on-going lockdown, Chhattisgarh Government has launched a virtual school using information technology. Students from class 9 to 12 will be able to take admission in this virtual school.
From the admission process to the studies and examinations, all the work will be on virtual platform. Students will also have the facility to choose a mentor of their choice and get their doubts cleared online.
The syllabus of this virtual school has been curtailed to 70 percent in comparison to the Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education syllabus. The portal of this virtual school is being developed by the NIC. The process of admission to this virtual school will start soon.
