The government is planning for reopening educational institutions from first or second week of February, said State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Zakir Hossain.
"To overcome classroom crisis for maintaining social distancing, classes of all graders will be taken in different days," said the state minister, reports Somoy TV.
Regular classes will be held only for 10th and 12th grades once educational institutions across the country reopen after a protracted closure induced by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Students of other classes will have in-person classes in their educational institutions once a week and take their tasks for the whole week.
Earlier, Education Minister Dipu Moni said in parliament that the education ministry has been asked to prepare for resuming classes by 4 February this year.
On 16 March last year, the government announced the closure of all educational institutions and coaching centres in the country for 18-31 March in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The shutdown of schools has since been extended a number of times until 30 January this year.
