According to a new directive from the Directorate of Education (DoE) published on Monday, schools in Delhi must guarantee that there are at least 220 working days in a school year.
“As per section 19 of RTE Act-2009 and National Curriculum Framework for School Education 2023, it is mandatory for all the schools running under the Directorate of Education to observe the minimum 220 working days in an academic year giving consideration to the notified lists of gazetted/restricted/local holidays for the calendar year (January to December),” said the circular.
According to the directive, heads of government schools must verify that 220 working days have passed before the start of the school year and before the start of the holidays.
It is also recommended that deputy district education (DDE) officers make sure that the same is strictly followed before approving restricted or local holidays for any school that falls under their purview. Furthermore, recognised unaided schools would also need permission from their respective management for holidays,” stated the DoE. As Delhi fights an air pollution crisis, schools reopen.
