The conditions are contained in a 36 pages document submitted to the Senate by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu.
The document is titled "Guidelines For schools and learning facilities reopening after Covid-19 Closure".The minister described the conditions as key strategies for implementing safe,efficient and equitable plans for school reopening and operations.
He noted that Given that COVID-19 may be with us for a while ,the guidelines also highlight the urgent need to maintain and improve upon distance learning programmes.
He added the guidelines were drafted in close coordination with health, environment, education, and school safety experts who were tasked with the responsibility of charting a pathway for safety reopening of schools and learning facilities for quality teaching and learning.
A major Plank of the conditionalities is that schools must create immediate temporary COVID-19 isolation space before they can be considered for reopening.
Schools are mandated to ensure establishment of a school COVID-19 Referral system including protocols and procedures yo take if learners, teachers, administrators ams other education personnel become unwell while in school.
