For private schools during the holy month of Ramadan, the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) has announced remote classes on Fridays.

The specifics state that private schools will have the choice to offer online classes on Fridays after consulting with parents.

The KHDA’s choice is in line with recent directives from Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates, stating that roughly 70% of federal employees will work remotely on Fridays during Ramadan.

Other colleges and universities in the nation will use the same approach. Both students and teachers who will be fasting and requiring some time to fulfil religious obligations will feel greatly relieved by the decision.

Ramadan will begin on Thursday, March 23, and last 29 days, according to Ibrahim Al Jarwan, Chairman of the Emirates Astronomical Centre (EAS), while Eid-ul-Fitr will occur on Friday, April 21.

Dubai Government Also Allows Some Employees to Work Remotely

The Dubai government previously revealed that starting on March 16th, some of its employees will be permitted to work remotely from public libraries.

According to Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, the Digital Economy, and Remote Work, new tools and management systems will be put in place to oversee this initiative. The minister emphasised that the new policy’s main objective is to improve workers’ wellbeing.

When asked about the expansion of this remote opportunity for private sector workers, Al Olama clarified that they will not compel the private firms to do the same. Currently, this remote opportunity from libraries is only available to Dubai government employees.
