Latvian Education Ministry of Latvia proposes three models for teaching process

BC, Riga, 28.07.2020.Print version
he Education and Science Ministry proposes three models for the teaching process, offering more extensive opportunities for using elements of distance learning, Education and Science Minister Ilga Suplinska (New Conservative Party) said in an interview to TV3 channel cited LETA.

Model A envisages in-person classes, provided that the school can meet epidemiological safety requirements, including physical distancing, hygiene, health monitoring and proper student flows. At the same time, elements of distance learning can make up to 20 percent of the education process in grades 7 to 12. No distance learning options are envisaged in this model for grades one to six. 


Model B envisages a partially remote learning process in cases where schools are unable to meet all the epidemiological requirements. In such cases, the learning process would take place both at school and remotely. In this model too, students in grades one to six would have to go to school, while for 7th to 12th grade students 40-60% of the learning process would take place at school and about as much remotely. In vocational schools, 60-80% of the teaching process would take place at school and distance learning would make up 20-40%. 


Model C envisages distance learning for students of all grades. This model should be used in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak at a school or nationwide epidemiological measures. 


The government today is scheduled to decide on the precautionary measures recommended by the Education and Science Ministry to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in preschools, comprehensive and vocational schools, higher education institutions and sports events.
