As schools re-opened in nearly 25 districts on Monday, only five per cent students across the state were present.
As per state School Education Department guidelines, 50 per cent students have been allowed to attend a class at one time. Officials expect attendance of students to improve in the coming days, but school principals have pointed to many challenges in ensuring that all students catch up with studies.
Solapur had the maximum number of students in attendance at 34 per cent, while Amravati saw attendance of only 0.8 per cent, despite reopening all of its 520 schools. 0.95 per cent teachers and 0.006 per cent of non-teaching employees were found Covid-19 positive among those who undertook the test.
