Governor of Lagos, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has revealed that schools are going to partially resume in the state on the 3rd of August, 2020.
The governor said the resumption is for those in SSS 3 and Tech III.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu revealed that the decision was taken after a meeting with stakeholders in the education sector.
“We just finished a very long meeting with various stakeholders in the education sector. That is what has kept us for the past two hours. And so, for the avoidance of doubt, students impacted by this directive would be in the transitional class of JSS 3, SSS 3 and Tech III, the technical schools three as well,” he said.
“The commencement date for this would be from Monday, August 3, 2020. SSS 3 and Tech 3 will start. But for JSS 3, we’ll wait for another one or two weeks and we’ll see how we’ve taken the first set of Tech 3 and SSS 3 before they now subsequently would open.
“This permitted opening would apply only to day schooling; no boarding activity of any sort is permitted at this time.
“School authorities are expected to spend this period, between now and August 3, to be able to prepare themselves well and get the right directives from our ministry of education and the quality assurance office under the ministry of education.”
For students in tertiary institutions, the governor said “they’ll continue to enjoy their online academic activities”, pending the decision taken on physical resumption.
