Imphal: The United Association of Recognised Schools of Manipur (UARSoM) and Hill District Private School Association Manipur (HiDiPSAM) have announced on Tuesday that all recognised private schools in the state will reopen from October.

The decision was taken during a joint meeting of UARSoM and HiDiPSAM at St Joseph’s Higher Secondary School, Saingaiprou in Imphal.

The associations decided to take their own decision and save the education of the students’ and private schools if the state government continued to remain indecisive on reopening of schools of both hills and valley.

During the meeting, the associations also order all constituent schools to collect 50% of tuition fees from the students from April until schools are reopened.

With the collection of 50% tuition fees from the students’, the authorities of the private school’s management will be able to pay the salary of the teachers and non-teaching staff, said UARSoM general secretary S Seikhojam Kipgen.

Earlier, HiDiPSAM announced to cease all school-related activities, including online classes, for five days following the state government’s failure to respond to the appeal made by the private schools association to review the June 20 order.

As per the order issued on June 20 by the education department (schools), all private schools with an enrolment of students’ below 200 will have to waive off students’ tuition fee and pay 50% of teaching and non-teaching staff’s salaries, while schools having students enrolment of above 700 to waive off tuition fee and pay 100% of teaching and non-teaching staff’s salaries of their schools.
