As schools re-opened in nearly 25 districts on Monday — after shutting in March due to the Covid-19 lockdown — only five per cent students across the state were present. As per state School Education Department guidelines, 50 per cent students have been allowed to attend a class at one time. Officials expect attendance of students to improve in the coming days, but school principals have pointed to many challenges in ensuring that all students catch up with studies. In addition to Mumbai, Palghar, and Thane, schools in Jalgaon, Hingoli, Nanded, Nashik, Dhule, Nagpur and Parbhani did not start on Monday. According to data available with the department, 35.3 per cent schools in the state, (9,127 out of 25,866) reopened on the day. Solapur had the maximum number of students in attendance (34 per cent), while Amravati saw attendance of only 0.8 per cent, despite reopening all of its 520 schools. As many as 1,353 out of 1,41,720 (0.95) per cent teachers and 290 out of 44,313 (0.006 per cent) non-teaching employees were found Covid-19 positive among those who undertook the test.
