In view of the dip in Covid-19 cases, the Tripura government has allowed reopening colleges and their hostels from August 25, 2021.
The state government has also issued Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for opening educational institutions.
To ensure the safety of all, the state government has said that colleges can adopt any convenient mode of teaching as long as it suits them and their students.
A notification issued by Higher Education Director NC Sharma has asked the Heads of these educational institutions to make sure that all guidelines are followed
All Principals and Principal in-charges have to arrange for complete and effective sanitization of Tripura Colleges and Hostels.
It is to be ensured that COVID-19’s appropriate behavior is followed by students, faculty, staff and visitors.
Heads and faculty of all institutions can arrange for extra tutorial classes for students as the pandemic has caused a loss to the on-going academic session in several ways.
Principals and Principal in-charges must ensure that the seating arrangement of students is such that social distancing is maintained for everyone’s safety.
Physical attendance for both teaching and non-teaching staff of Tripura Colleges and Hostels has been made mandatory on all working days.
In case Tripura Colleges and Hostels face the issue of space or teachers being unavailable to teach, it is important for these institutions to adopt alternate measures.
This means that Tripura Colleges can then adopt measures like staggering attendance by holding classes on alternative days or having a time schedule for different batches.
