Heatwave: After schools, colleges switch to online learning in West Bengal  



Due to extreme summer conditions in West Bengal, various colleges are now conducting online classes for students. This step has been taken following a recent notification by the state government to either advance summer vacations or completely transition into virtual mode because of the summer heat.

A few weeks ago, the West Bengal government had directed private schools to advance summer vacation to May 2 keeping in mind the health and well-being of young learners. Private schools in West Bengal have abided by the notification and have already switched to the online mode of teaching-learning. This has been implemented without causing any disruptions to the ongoing Board of Secondary Education or the Council of Higher Secondary Education’s examinations.
