Face-to-face Classes For National Summer School Programme Pushed Back To Tuesday

  Face-to-face classes for the National Summer School Programme have been postponed until Tuesday.   The Ministry of Education says this is due to the heavy rains associated with Tropical Storm Elsa.   Online classes started on Monday.   The ministry says the postponement will allow administrators time to ensure that schools are in a proper state to accommodate students.   Summer classes cover grades one to 11.   Acting Chief Education Officer Dr. Kasan Troupe said 43,000 students have registered for summer school.   They will be engaged by 4,500 tutors.   According to Dr. Troupe, efforts continue to locate the rest of the 120,000 students who are being targeted for the programme.    She revealed that response support teams are “in the field trying to get parents to understand the importance of re-engaging the students at this time, in preparation for the new school year.”    Dr. Troupe reiterated that the summer school programme is fully funded by the Education Ministry so students or their parents should not be charged.
