The Lagos State Government has said that all public and private schools in the state must resume for the first term of the 2019/2020 academic session on Monday.
It said that by so doing, they would be adhering to the Uniform School Calendar approved by the state government.
This is contained in a statement released on Friday by Mr Kayode Sutton of the the Public Affairs department in the state’s Ministry of Education and made available to newsmen in Lagos.
According to the statement, the Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, said that the adoption of a uniform academic calendar will enable proper planning and organisation by the Ministry.
She said that it would also afford the pupils and the students the opportunities to attend schools for the number of days required by them in each term.
