The Kaduna State Government has directed all public schools in the state to migrate to the four-day working week, as schools reopen on January 10 for the second term of the 2021/2022 academic session.

The Commissioner for Education, Halima Lawal, gave the directive in Kaduna in a notice for school resumption for second term of the 2021/2022 academic session.

Recall that the Kaduna State Government had on December 1, 2021, begun transition to a four-day working week.

A statement by Muyiwa Adekeye, media adviser to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, had explained that the new measure would eventually affect the organised private sector in the state.

According to the statement, the measure is designed to help boost productivity, improve work-life balance and enable workers to have more time for their families, for rest and for agriculture.

Lawal explained that in view of the new development, the 2021/2022 academic calendar would be adjusted to ensure coverage of the curriculum for the academic session.

She said all parents, guardians, and the public should note that the state government has approved January 10 as the resumption date for the 2nd term of the 2021/2022 academic session.

The commissioner also urged the school administrators and proprietors to adhere to the Safe School Learning Initiatives as directed by the Federal Ministry of Education.

She advised members of the school security committee to ensure proper monitoring of security apparatus and prompt reporting of any security threats in their schools through the following numbers: 09034000060 or 08170189999.
