Chetumal, Q.R. — The government of Quintana Roo has announced the resumption of classes for the 2021 school year will remain virtual. While hope remained that students would be able to return to face-to-face classes, the Ministry of Education says that did not happen.
In a videoed press released, Ana Isabel Vásquez Jiménez, head of the Ministry of Education of Quintana Roo released the details for students to restart their online classes, which began January 11.
She said the government will continue to use the digital platforms for online learning, which were set up for the 2020 school year. Vásquez Jiménez pointed out the importance of parents registering their children for classes through the Parents Online website.
She explained that by being registered, “we not only attend to the statistical issue, but we also make sure that students have access to different benefits such as scholarships.”
Last year, more than 380,000 parents made use of the Parents Online website. She explained that students in the state are still far from returning to classes in person, but added that they have a Safe Return to Classes Plan for the eventual, which would be gradual and in small groups of students.
