In-person studies will be restored only for grades one to six in the cities of Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Rustavi and Zugdidi starting October 1, while in Poti and Gori all grades will restart in-person studies, said Natia Mezvrishvili, the head of the government administration earlier today.
The exception is Adjara, where schools will continue to study remotely based on the severe epidemiological condition.
However, Mezvrishvili noted that parents of school students who will be studying in person on October 1 will still have the ability to decide to have their children study remotely.
Everywhere, except the Adjara region, students with special educational needs will be able to meet a teacher and receive in-person studies at school, said Georgian Minister of Education Mikheil Chkhenkeli.
As for universities and vocational schools, studies will continue remotely in Tbilisi, Rustavi, Kutaisi, Zugdidi and the Adjara region, noted Chkhenkeli.
He noted that all schools which start in-person studies on October 1 are observing all the recommendations of the Health Ministry to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
In-person studies for school and university students have been postponed until October 1 in the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi and other large cities of the country such as Gori, Rustavi, Kutaisi, Zugdidi and Poti. However, studies began everywhere on September 15 but in the above-mentioned cities, students have been studying remotely so far.
