Field Officers will be regularly visiting schools, in order to keep a check on the academic progression. This is being done to make sure that the schedule for accomplishment of targets is followed, he added.

Kashmir schools have been closed since 5 August, the day the Centre abrogated Article 370, and thus, stripped the state of its special status. Following protests and violent opposition, the schools were shut five months before the scheduled winter vacations as a precautionary measure.
