Preface

The Directorate of Curriculum and Teacher Education Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Abbottabad has undertaken the development of Accelerated Academic Calendar as part of the overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The school year 2020-21 has been shortened considerably due to the closures of schools resulting from the outbreak. Therefore, it is imperative that schools shall implement an academic calendar designed to ensure coverage of all essential skills related to knowledge, skills, and attitudes in a shortened academic year.

                     This Accelerated Academic Calendar (AAC) will provide the schools and students with a roadmap of learning for the academic year 2020-21 only. It will also provide the teachers with the guidelines to implement the AAC and will provide a base for annual examination of SSC 2021 and I am confident that we will succeed in ensuring continuity of learning for our children in these difficult circumstances.
With this, I thank everyone who contributed to the development of AAC, particularly the DCTE subject experts and the team of working teachers, they put together for this task. I must extend my thanks to the BISE Peshawar for the continuous support throughout this process and in the completion of the task.

AAC for Secondary Classes

 

Education systems in most countries have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and have prompted widespread country-wide school closures and physical distancing measures, likewise in Pakistan, and specifically in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The schools remained closed till 15th September 2020. This implies that approximately more than 5 million children in KP lost touch with teaching-learning for approximately 6 months; though a small number of students did have access to online and other alternative learning modalities, yet the major portion remained detached from the regular teaching-learning process.

 

KPK Govt Substantial Steps

 

Talking specifically of KP, for an enhanced education system-level response to the pandemic, The Elementary & Secondary Education Department, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa undertook substantial steps to ensure continuity of learning in an equitably. Online content was made available, with of course low coverage of students.

                    An important step taken by the E&SED KP is the Development of Accelerated Academic Calendar for the secondary grades one to 8 was also undertaken to serve as accelerated pacing guides for teachers to conduct Catch Up classes, bridging the lost teaching time, enabling them to complete courses in a short time. The initiatives have received much recognition and appreciation.

The Boards of Intermediate and Secondary Education in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other stakeholders highlighted the need for the development of Accelerated Academic Calendar (ACC) at the Secondary level classes i.e. 9th and 10th. These classes have also suffered in terms of time lost, the same way as the lower grades. The students are at the decisive entry point in pursuit of their academic career as they have to appear for the Board Examination. For this academic session, the teaching-learning time available is less than the normal routine.

 

Short Course for Students

Since this is a critical and complex level, with a complicated vertical and horizontal alignments and closely-knit progression of the course contents in each subject, it cannot be left to the teachers to pick and choose the topics to be dropped or taught to the students. There is a need for carefully and technically reviewing the course contents, and the Academic Calendar, by the Subject Experts, and decide the selection of Content be taught to students in the shortened time period, without disturbing its alignment.

As this is high stake intervention, which will enable the teachers to make effective and efficient use of the time available and cover all the essential course contents, and help students to be able to show good performance in summative assessment and examination, after receiving structured guidance from the teachers. It will be mandatory for BISE to set the papers for annual exam 2020-21 on the bases of content/topics that Accelerated Academic Calendar (AAC) on the topics/contents mentioned in the AAC for the session 2020-2021.
