If the student strength is more than 750, classes will be conducted once in every three days. All schools will function for half day from November 2.

Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, who conducted a review with the Education Department on Tuesday, said the academic schedule had been fixed keeping in view of parents’ concerns.
