Shillong: With the Meghalaya government announcing all schools will remain closed till April 30 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, queries have been raised by stakeholders over the academic future of students in the state.

Ambrose Ch Marak, director of school education and literacy, higher and technical education, has now advised schools, colleges, teachers, and students to participate and register with the free social Initiative and startup, ‘CR School’.

CR School is a platform for all schools to be available online for interactive e-learning, started by Christopher Rani, its CEO and founder, with an aim to bridge any type of physical boundaries brought about by external circumstances that could hinder the growth and development of students at large.

Marak said that he is keen to mitigate the anxiety of the students, parents, and schools.

“In view of the prevailing extraordinary circumstances of the worldwide spread of COVID-19 and the countrywide lockdown, and in view of the queries raised by our stakeholders regarding the academic future of students, I have advised all schools to take this reformative step and receive full access to important features like seamless online classes, interactive communications between teachers and students, updated class lessons, personal evaluations, prometric tests, on-the-go access to study materials and downloadable content, among others,” said Marak.

CR School has come forward as a ray of hope for schools, colleges, teachers, and students alike. The technical team at CR Projects in collaboration with the education department is working constantly behind the scenes to take care of the academic future of its students and are looking forward to more schools joining in.

For more information, schools that are interested can contact the toll-free number of CR School – 1800-572-0907.

All educational institutions in the state have been closed since March 17 after the government announced immediate closure on March 16 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
