NEW DELHI : The Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi on Wednesday directed its schools to redeploy guest teachers who were discontinued from services during the summer vacation in view of rising Covid-19 cases in the national capital.

There are over 20,000 guest teachers engaged in government, aided schools and taken over schools in the national capital.

The Directorate of Education (DoE) in a circular issued today asked the guest teachers who were working in the government schools till 19 April of this year to report on duty by Thursday without fail.

The DOE further said if a guest teacher fails to report the school by 17 June it will be presumed that he or she is no longer interested and alternative arrangements will be made.

The DOE also asked the head of the schools not to allow those guest teachers who have been disengaged due to misconduct or remained absent without permission, poor performance or resigned due to personal reasons.

The vacation, which was scheduled from May 11 to June 30 was rescheduled from April 20 to June 9.
