“After the results, teachers have to do some career counselling for students so they get proper guidance to choose the right course to get admitted to,” Sawant told reporters. The Goa board is likely to announce results for both public exams next month.

Director of education Dilip Bhagat said that the department is in the process of finalising the scheme for this counselling. He said that teachers would be explained the procedure of how to hold these sessions. “Counselling will be done virtually,” he said.
Bhagat said that teachers would be asked to find out the students’ interests and guide them accordingly.
Sawant said that the state government has yet to take a decision on calling students to schools. Sawant said that while teachers have started going to schools, the directorate of education has instructed them to teach their students by sending them worksheets and recorded videos, as
TOI reported in its Monday edition.
“The schools have to support their students by suitable alternative means, including online. The schools have to come up with alternatives for students who can’t participate in online teaching,” Bhagat had said. “On the commencement of regular classes, the teachers will cover up the entire syllabus for the academic year 2021-22 so that no student is left out.”
“Till such time schools reopen, teachers should prepare worksheets and lectures and reach out to students not connected via online means, in addition to carrying out online teaching,” the directorate had stated in a circular, adding that this shall not apply to schools in containment zone, teachers residing in containment zones and schools taken over by the disaster management authority.
