The education ministry announced the decision in a notice on Saturday night following the advice of the National Technical Advisory Committee on COVID-19 after the government decided to extend an ongiong lockdown to curb the outbreak.
The educational institutions have been closed since mid-March 2020 after Bangladesh detected the first cases of the coronavirus. They are holding online classes to minimise the loss in giving lessons to the students.
The government had planned a reopening of the institutions with in-person classes on May 23 this year, but had to scrap it due to a rapid rise in infections in the second wave of the outbreak.
