We have been discussing with the social partners the possibility for the school year to start on the first Monday of September, not on September 15, Bulgaria’s caretaker Minister of Education and Science Academician Nikolai Denkov said. 

This change is reasonable, especially in the current epidemic situation, because it gives students more time to revisit and revise their lessons. There is no need to change the school holidays, Minister Denkov explained. The school year for younger pupils can be extended by the end of June, if necessary, as it happened last school year, Nikolay Denkov said.

The ministry of Education and Science cannot say when upper grades students will return to class, until the necessary Covid-19 tests are delivered, Minister Denkov went on to say.
