On Thursday, the Karnataka Government announced that the next academic for state board schools will begin on May 16th. As past 2 years were lost for studies due to covid 19 and other restrictions. So classes starting early would help to bring the children up to speed with the syllabus.
According to the academic calendar issued by the department of public instruction, the summer holidays will be from April 10 to May 15. Earlier, it was decided to end the current academic year by April 30 and reopen schools on June 1.
