Jammu and Kashmir School Students Relieved on 'No-Detention'

Posted By:

In order to aid relief to school students who have struggled in the current academic year amidst the unrest in Jammu and Kashmir, the J&K government on Thursday announced mass promotion for select classes.

The state government recommended no-detention policy and has asked schools to take students from classes 5 to 9 and class 11 to the next level without detaining them for poor marks.

"All the students from Class 5 to 9 and Class 11 from all the government schools and recognised private schools of Kashmir valley shall be elevated to the next level with immediate effect," an official of the School Education Department said.

According to the official, the government has waived off the Term-2 examinations for the students of all classes including 8th, 9th and 11th for all government schools and the recognised private schools of Kashmir for the current academic session.

J&K School Students Relieved on 'No-Detention'

However, the new academic year will not have such concessions and stringent rules will be followed in promotion, it seems.

"As a consequence the new academic calendar for the schools shall commence in the Kashmir valley forthwith," the official said. Also the earlier government order on scrapping of "No Detention" policy for classes 5 to 9 shall now take effect from the calendar year 2017.

Schools in Kashmir had initially closed for two weeks long summer vacation on July 1. Following this, schools could not resume functioning due to the violence that outbroke in the valley.

Even schools were targetted in the violence and the safety of students were at stake. The government however took the volition to conduct exams with some relaxation for students there as they have been struggling to study under a tensed atmosphere.

Students from classes 10 and 12 were given an option to attend the exam in November or March and cover only fifty per cent of the syllabus.
