Bengaluru: Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister Suresh Kumar cautioned schools against holding online classes for prolonged hours, in violation of the guidelines set by the State government’s Expert Committee on Online Education.

Schools violating the order will lose their recognition and face fines.

The warning has come in the backdrop of reports that prolonged online classes were adversely affecting student’s health, especially their eyesight.

While allowing online classes to be resumed in the state, the committee had stated that the screentime for students from pre-primary to Grade 5 should be 30 minutes per session and for grades 6-10 it should be 45 minutes.

Pre-primary students (3-6 years) are allowed three days of classes per week with one session per day and those in grade one and two can have classes three days a week with two sessions per day. For grades 3-5, five days of classes are allowed per week with two sessions per day, for grades 6-8, five days of classes with three classes per day and for grades 9 and 10, five days of classes with four sessions per day.
