The acting Interagency Council, led by the Prime Minister of Georgia, decided to extend holidays until April 1, in an effort to continue to battle the spread of New Coronavirus.
Shortly after conducting a regular meeting of the Interagency Coordinating Council , the Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia, Mikeil Chkhenkeli stated: "Due to the significance of health of our youth, we have decided to extend holidays at the Educational Institutions until April 1”.
I would like to emphasize that the Ministry has developed a specific educational and academic plan that schools and higher education institutions will introduce to students in the coming days. This plan guarantees that the academic and educational process will not be hindered. "
The Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport is working to provide schools with a flexible national curriculum to enable students to complete the current academic year and continue their education from the next academic year until the full curriculum goals are fully met.
This modification of the learning process will enable us to complete the study within the timeframe.
The ministry also prepares recommendations for schools on how teachers work with students during the holidays. General education institutions will provide students with a variety of resources and extracurricular assignments for two weeks individually, depending on the local context.
The package of recommendations will be sent to all secondary education institutions by March 16.
It should be noted that during the holidays schoolteachers, administration and technical staff will receive remuneration uninterrupted.
