Every school and educational place, both formal and non-formal in terms of education in Chonburi, will not be allowed to proceed with in person school learning (On Site) from June 14th out of concern for Covid-19.
TPN media first made the announcement on our social media channels late last night which had significant negative feedback from local parents. The decision is a provincial, not national, order. From a national perspective only so-called deep red provinces have in school learning closed from a government order, the remainder is up to each provinces Governor and communicable disease committee.
The order has been issued yesterday (June 9th) by the Chonburi Governor Phakarathorn Teanchai.
The order concluded the number of confirmed Covid -19 cases in Chonburi has decreased with nearly none in children having been discovered. However, the Governor and disease committee still feel the number of cases in Chonburi is too high to proceed with in person learning and there is concern over possible asymptomatic spread from children to the vulnerable and non vaccinated. In order to continue controlling the spread of Covid- 19, learning will be from the following:
- Teaching through the local TV cable system and satellite system (On Air)
- Teaching through the Internet (Online)
- Teaching by using various mobile applications (On Demand)
- Teaching by providing workbooks and worksheets for students to take to learn at home under the help of parents (On Hand).
This will be until further notice.
This is Chonburi specific and not national and a provincial decision with some other provinces having announced they will resume in person schooling with others having not yet made a final decision. Dark red zones like Bangkok will not be moving forward with in person learning due to orders from the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration or CCSA.
Parents are encouraged to reach out directly to their local school, public or private, to see what their plan will be on schooling moving forward based on the Chonburi order. This may differ from school to school.
