Primary, secondary and higher secondary educational institutions are expected to reopen from 12 September simultaneously nationwide.
Education Minister Dipu Moni made the statement while attending a function in Chandpur on Friday.
“Dipu Moni also said that Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC) examinations will be held as per the ministry’s previous announcement” .
Earlier on Thursday, The National Technical Advisory Committee (NTAC) on Covid-19 had recommended reopening the educational institutions across the country as the infections rate has gone down.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had told parliament earlier that measures had already been taken upon her instructions to reopen schools and colleges soon.
The Ministry of Education is expected to hold a meeting on Sunday to decide on the reopening of educational institutions across the country.
All educational institutions have been closed since March 2020 after the coronavirus pandemic unfolded in Bangladesh. Fresh wave of infections have thwarted several attempts by the education ministry to reopen schools.
