The schools would function till March 31 for Classes I to IX and the summer vacation would commence from April 1.

However, Classes for X, XI and XII standards alone would be conducted till the commencement of public examinations in the respective regions as per the schedule of the respective Boards.

As far as Standards X and XI in Puducherry and Karaikal regions are concerned, students studying in schools affiliated to the Tamil Nadu Board have been declared ‘all pass’, and the guidelines issued by the Tamil Nadu Board would be followed.

A few days ago, Lt. Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan had approved the Directorate’s proposal to grant all pass to students of the classes.
