To ensure the safety of children and colleagues, more than 80 percent of teachers have been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Metropolitan schools will start the academic year in the usual format. This was stated in an interview with the program “Week in the City” on the TV channel “Russia 1” Sergei Sobyanin…
“We will try to make the school year pass as normal. Given that more than 80 percent of educators and teachers have been vaccinated, this is very important. That is, we have protected teachers, as far as possible, from the likelihood of getting sick, “- said the Mayor of Moscow.
He added that the introduction of distance learning due to the difficult epidemiological situation last year did not affect the quality of the capital’s education.
“Moscow schoolchildren passed the USE well and just brilliantly performed at Russian and international Olympiads, reaching the maximum that could be achieved, even performing better than in previous years. This suggests that Moscow education remains at a high level, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.
Despite the fact that classes will be held in person, some sanitary requirements will remain in schools in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Temperatures will be measured for teachers and children, and additional disinfection will be carried out in classrooms and other rooms. In addition, in order to prevent the congestion of children, the flows of students will be divided.
Since more than 80 percent of teachers were vaccinated, the mandatory mask regime for them is canceled.
Education is one of the priority areas for the development of the capital. Since 2011, 316 kindergartens and 117 schools have been built in Moscow. In plans for 2021-2023 to build more than 90 new buildings of schools and kindergartens at the expense of the city budget and about the same at the expense of investors.
