“According to this, we open our schools with distance education on 31 August 2020, and this is how we start our teaching year. On September 21, we have decided to start gradual and diluted face-to-face education in the classes recommended by the Scientific Committee.
Private schools will of course be able to start their educational activities with distance education tools as of Monday, August 17. Students who cannot receive face-to-face education will continue their education with distance education tools. Distance education tools consist of EBA television channels within the framework of content suitable for their level, live lessons with their own teachers, and following these lessons, EBA also includes a number of topics within the content of the internet. “
