All public and private schools in Plateau State are to resume for academic activities February 1.
The state’s Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) announced this in a statement on Saturday.
Chairman of the Board, Mathew Sule, said by the directive all the acting Education Secretaries in the 17 local government areas of the state should work in conjunction with head teachers and union leaders to mobilise parents to send their children to school by February 1.
Sule also said that Head teachers are to ensure both teachers and students adhere strictly to the safety protocols put in place by the government against COVID-19.
“Head teachers should ensure that third term academic work is completed and all outstanding examinations are conducted and the results forwarded to the board,” he said.
Sule directed head teachers to open a register for staff in their various schools and ensure they remain at work until closing hours.
