Oman denies rumours on the start of new academic year

Oman denies rumours on the start of new academic year :

Omani government has denied rumors about the start dates of the new academic year in Oman

“The message circulating about the start of the school year is not correct, as this has not been announced yet. The competent authorities will officially announce it in a timely manner.”

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education has been taking views of the community on the possible teaching methods for the new academic year 2020-21 including the viability and the effectiveness of the new online teaching.

With less than three weeks left for the new academic year 2020-2021 amid COVID-19, the ministry has called on different segments of the society to participate in an electronic survey to find a suitable alternative for classroom education.

Within 17 hours of the launch of the survey on Thursday, more than 37,000 people took part in the survey, which closes today.

In light of the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, the ministry confirmed that it has developed several alternatives to provide education during the next academic year after consulting educational directorates in the governorates, and best international experiences, especially on integrated education which combines e-learning and classroom teaching.
