Lower Saxony: Distance teaching and emergency care in schools and daycare centers until the end of January | Regional


Hannover – After the federal-state consultations on coping with the corona crisis, Lower Saxony is restricting the operation of schools and day-care centers more than announced before the holidays.

“It was very important to me that we find a way that significantly reduces contact, but also ensures education and support, especially for the youngest, and secures future opportunities,” said Minister of Culture Grant Hendrik Tonne (SPD) on Tuesday evening.

“That is why we pay special attention to primary and final classes.”

The regulations apply from Saturday until the end of January.

PRIMARY SCHOOLS: In the first week after the holidays (January 11th, 2021 – January 15th, 2021) there are distance lessons (scenario C), followed by two weeks of alternate teaching in divided learning groups (scenario B) until the end of the semester.

FURTHER TRAINING: The classes in upper secondary levels I and II, in which no qualifications are pending, switch completely to distance learning (scenario C) – i.e. homeschooling. This also applies to vocational schools.

GRADUATION AND GRADUATION CLASSES: Alternating instruction in divided classes (scenario B). “Nobody has to worry about the qualification,” said the minister: “All exams for the secondary school, secondary school and special school qualifications will take place, as will the Abitur.”

EMERGENCY SUPPORT AT SCHOOLS: For pupils in grades 1 to 6 who are not in the classroom teaching group, emergency care is planned, usually between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The emergency care is used to take in children for whom at least one parent or legal guardian is active in a job that is necessary for the company in a branch of general public interest, also in cases of hardship.

CHILD DAY CENTERS: Here there is emergency care with up to 50 percent of the group size, in principle the facilities are closed.
