Public schools in Kaduna state are to open only four working days a week, between Monday to Thursday instead of the usual five days.
The Kaduna state government gave the directive in a notice for school resumption for the second term of the 2021/2022 academic session released by the Commissioner for Education, Halima Lawal.
Lawal explained that the 2021/2022 academic calendar would be adjusted to ensure coverage of the curriculum for the academic session.
Parents, guardians, and the public have also been notified that the state government has approved January 10 as the resumption date for the second term of the 2021/2022 academic session.
The directive to public schools comes five weeks after the state government migrated to a four-day working week for all civil servants.
