The conditionalities are contained in a 36-page document submitted to the Senate by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu for their Information.

The document is titled: “Guidelines for schools and learning facilities reopening after COVID-19 pandemic closure.”

The Minister in his forward to the document described the conditionalities as key strategies for implementing safe, efficient, and equitable plans for school reopening and operations.

He noted that “given that COVID-19 may be with us for a while, the guidelines also highlight the urgent need to maintain and improve upon distance learning programmes.”

He added that the guidelines were drafted in close coordination with health, environmental, education, and school safety experts who were tasked with the responsibility of charting a pathway for safely reopening schools and learning facilities for quality teaching and learning.

A major plank of the conditionalities is that schools must “create immediate temporary” COVID-19 “isolation space” before they can be considered to reopen

The Osun State Government has said a private school proprietor in the state had been handed to over to the police for circulating unapproved plan for school reopening .
The school reopening proposal was shared in many whatsapp groups in the state on Wednesday and when attention of Special Adviser to the governor on Education , Mr Jamiu Olawumi was drawn to the proposal , he told our correspondent to disregard it.
Olawumi , who claimed that the man circulating the said proposal had been arrested by the police on the order of state government , told residents to wait for the directive of Governor Gboyega Oyetola on the issue .
According to the said reopening proposal , schools in Osun state were to resume on July 20 , 2020 and only 20 children were to sit in a class
It was also proposed that big schools would run two shifts of morning , 8 am to 12 pm ; and afternoon , 1 .30 pm to 5 .30 pm daily .
But Olawumi said , “Schools were closed by the President and the power to reopen has been conceded to the state governors . Osun citizens should await the announcement as endorsed by the governor very soon . We have handed him ( the person behind the proposal ) over to the police . Disregard the proposal please .”
Efforts to get reaction of Osun State leadership of National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools to the development proved futile .
