Upper-secondary schools may use distance teaching

From Monday 23 November, upper-secondary schools may use distance teaching as a complement to teaching on-site in order to reduce crowding in school premises and thereby the risk of Covid-19 spreading between pupils and staff.

The Swedish Government writes that upper-secondary schools should first have considered other options for reducing crowding. The timetable can be adapted, other premises used or the school day extended for example. Teaching can also take place in the evening or at weekends.

The general rule in the Swedish Education Act is teaching on-site. Schools should consider whether it is appropriate to conduct distance teaching based on the pupils' different learning aptitudes and needs.
