PATNA: The state’s secondary and higher secondary schools will reopen for students of higher classes (IX to XII) on Tuesday, 28 September, as per the latest guidelines issued by the Department of Education here on Tuesday.

More than 50 percent of teachers and non-teaching staff do not attend school daily and only one-third of the students will be allowed to attend their classes during the day. Thus, a student will be able to attend his classes only two days a week, which will be according to the schedule fixed by the schools.
