Kaduna Commissioner for Education, Halima Lawal gave the directive in a notice for school resumption for the second term of the 2021/2022 academic session.
The commissioner explained that the 2021/2022 academic calendar would be adjusted to ensure coverage of the curriculum for the academic session.
Parents, guardians, and the public have also been notified that the state government has approved January 10 as the resumption date for the second term of the 2021/2022 academic session.
