Schools in the emirate started the new academic year with online classes, which would continue for two weeks until September 10.

Education authorities have started inspecting private schools in Sharjah to check and monitor their compliance with health and safety protocols.

While other campuses in the country welcomed back students on Sunday, schools in the emirate started the new academic year with online classes, which would continue for two weeks until September 10.

The Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA), in coordination with the Sharjah Prevention and Safety Authority, has launched an inspection campaign to make sure that when students go back to campuses, all safety protocols are implemented properly.

A top official at the SPEA stressed that violations will not be tolerated. Penalties could be imposed or the school could be ordered to continue distance learning classes until further notice.

Authorities obliged schools to form their own Covid-19 task force that would be in charge of enforcing precautionary measures on campus. This special team would also encourage students, teachers, parents and other staff to remain committed to safety.

Under the reopening guidelines issued by the SPEA, the number of students at a building must be limited and social distancing must be maintained at all times, the official said. Medical supplies must also be adequate.

The SPEA official said they will continue to ensure the implementation of all health requirements and a team has been formed to follow up on the progress of distance learning.
