Private schools in Dubai can choose extended study hours in consultation with their parents. The Bureau of Knowledge and Human Development (KHDA), a private education regulator in the Emirate, announced Wednesday.
“A certain degree of flexibility is granted so that schools can meet the requirements of the curriculum. All schools need to notify KHDA of updated business hours,” a website statement said. I am.

However, officials also said that school days cannot end after 12:00 pm on Friday.
Private schools in Dubai are given the option to ensure that lesson hours are not shortened when the UAE moves from January to a new working week.
Earlier this month, the UAE government announced plans to move to a new working week from 2022. All government departments in the country work from Monday to Thursday with half a day on Friday. Saturdays and Sundays are closed.
Schools in the country should adopt the same structure.
The first day of school in 2022 is Monday, January 3rd.
Meanwhile, Sharjah has declared four days a week of work for public sector employees in the Emirate. Therefore, we offer these employees a three-day weekend.
All private institutions in Sharjah are also open only four days a week, but schools are given the option to follow one of several models to make up for the loss of weekly school days.
Private schools in Sharjah can extend study time, hold online classes after school, or add a week to the academic year.
