The Lagos State Government on Tuesday announced resumption guidelines for 2021 to 2022 academic session for public and private schools across the State.
This resumption schedule was contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo.
According to the statement, schools are expected to resume on September 13, while Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools students are to resume in batches from September 19.
The commissioner noted the measure will create enabling environment for the examinations.
“Boarders in Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools, as well as SS2 students seeking placement into SS3 class are expected to resume on September 19.
”The revision for the classes will run from Sept. 20th to 26th while promotion examination to SS3 class will start from September 27 to October 8.
“The newly admitted JS1 students into Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools are to resume on Oct.2, for a one-week orientation programme to intimate them on secondary school structure and modalities,” she said.
The Commissioner noted that other returning students in JS2, JS3, SS1 and the newly transited SS2 in the various Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools were to resume on October 9, while classes for the students will begin on October 11.
She added that another reason was that the schools cannot accommodate seven sets at once in the boarding system.
