Odisha government to reduce school syllabus due to COVID-19 lockdown. The Odisha State Syllabus Committee will hold a meeting to discuss syllabus reduction. After the discussion, the chairman of the committee will submit a report to the board secretary.

The state government of Odisha will be holding a meeting to reduce the school syllabus for the academic year 2020-21 to relieve the student of academic pressure. The Council of Higher Secondary Education Odisha has announced that it has decided to reduce the school curriculum for 2020-2021. The decision to reduce the syllabus was taken considering the ongoing coronavirus situation in the country due to which the number of working days of school is expected to be low for this academic year.

A meeting of the syllabus committee to consider reducing the syllabus will be held through video conferencing. “Due to COVID-19 pandemic and consequent lockdown, classroom teaching has been adversely affected during the current academic session,” Dr. Pranab Mangaraj, Secretary, CHSE, said in a letter sent to the school principals and board officials.

The specifics of the syllabus reduction will be finalised after a meeting is held by the syllabus committee of CHSE Odisha through video conferencing in the upcoming weeks.

A letter by CHSE was addressed to all schools in the states which read, “Due to COVID-19 pandemic and consequent lockdown, classroom teaching has been adversely affected during the current academic session.” The meeting which will be held through video conferencing will discuss in detail how the syllabus of each subject is to be reduced for this academic year so that no important parts are missed out and some academic pressure is released for the students.
