Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has been at the forefront of the fight against coronavirus pandemic since the beginning. The Sangathan had decided that upon a formal request from any defence authority or district administration, KV school premises will be made available for setting up isolation centres. Keeping true to the promise, until date 80 Kendriya Vidyalayas have been turned into Quarantine Centres.
The teaching and non-teaching staff of the Sangathan has also made a contribution of INR 10,40,60,536 towards the PM-CARES Fund.
KVS teachers have also risen to the occasion and have adapted to digital modes of education in order to make sure that students do not lose an academic year due to the coronavirus crisis. The Sangathan has shared action points with principals and has also developed essential protocol for online classes to be conducted by KV teachers.
KVS has also shared the schedule of recorded and live lessons of NIOS for Secondary and Senior Secondary classes which could be accessed from the SWAYAM Prabha portal. The lessons went live on April 7, 2020.
School teachers have been asked to inform students about the NIOS lessons through e-mail, call, WhatsApp or SMS to ensure maximum participation.
In order to clear doubts and answer queries, KVS has nominated some selected teachers for Live Session which will be held by NIOS on the SWAYAM Prabha portal.
These nominated teachers will prepare additional material/notes on the content broadcasted in morning session of the same day so that the doubts of the learner could be clarified during live session and if doubts are not coming in during live session then the faculty will recapitulate the content or transact the content through PPT/suitable teaching aids.
So far, 32, 247 teachers are taking classes using online resources. These classes have seen participation from approximately 7,07,312 students across the country.
Apart from conducting classes through various non-traditional modes, KVS is also taking care of the mental well-being of students during the lockdown through counselling.
KVS has engaged 331 trained Counselors on part time contract basis and 268 Kendriya Vidyalaya teachers trained in Guidance &Counselling from NCERT have also been involved. Until last Friday, 2393 students and 1648 parents have reached out to the counselors with their queries which were promptly answered.
