All private schools in Sharjah will reopen on Sunday, September 27, with a hybrid learning model in place.

The announcement was made on Monday by the Sharjah Private Education Authority via its social media channels.

In August, the authority had mandated that all schools in the emirate continue a 100 per cent distance learning model for the first two weeks of reopening.

That complete distance learning model was subsequently extended for another two weeks.

However, now students can choose to return to their campus for a hybrid learning model starting Sunday.

Last month, the UAE’s Minister of Education, Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi outlined plans for a phased return of students to the campus at the start of the year.

A maximum of 25 per cent of students would be allowed to return to the campus, with that number gradually increased.

“We decided to implement a hybrid education system giving parents the freedom to choose between their children’s attendance at school or distance education for the first semester,” Hussain bin Ibrahim Al Hammadi said at the time.

The Ministry of Education has also implemented a monitoring and inspection system through an operations room open 24 hours a day to ensure that the precautionary guidelines are met at all educational establishments throughout the country.
