Saudi: Administrative staff to return to schools on Sunday


More than 114,000 administrative employees across the schools in Saudi Arabia will be back at work on Sunday in preparation for the new school year amid strict precautions against COVID-19.

The return of the employees comes months after authorities closed educational institutions as part of measures to curb the spread of the new coronavirus. Additionally, over 520,000 school teachers will also be back to their workplaces next week in the run-up to the new school year which is set to begin on Aug. 30, a report in Al-Yaum newspaper said.

It is not clear yet whether the classroom teaching or e-learning or a combination of both systems will be adopted.

In recent days, several Saudi media outlets have quoted parents expressing concern over the teaching methods for the new school year.
