The meeting of the National Council for CBSE schools delegation with Minister Sivankutty comes in the wake of the Kerala government's decision at its Covid review meeting on Tuesday to reopen schools and hold classes in full capacity from February 28. Until then it has been decided that all offline classes will be held with 50% attendance.

When asked what steps the schools should take if some parents express apprehensions about sending their children to the schools on health concerns, Sivankutty told the delegation that those who have such worries could continue attending the classes through online mode.
