Abu Dhabi: Parents in Abu Dhabi with children enrolled in private schools will be allowed to opt for distance learning during the upcoming school term.
This is a departure from the previous guidelines, which required all students to receive some form of in-class learning from August 30 onwards.
“Responding to a strong call from parents who prefer continuing distance learning for their children, Adek has approved the option of full-time distance learning for the upcoming term. We have also dedicated a hotline which parents can use to report and address any concerns: 800-COMPLIANC(E)/800-266754262,” the Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (Adek), the emirate’s education sector regulator, confirmed to Gulf News.
The previous school term in the UAE was also carried out through distance learning in a bid to limit the coronavirus outbreak.
