Floods forced the closure of at least 129 primary schools and six high schools in Kurigram, Lalmonirhat and Sunamganj affecting education of 20,000 students in the first week of the current month.
The mid-term exams of one or two subjects had to be rescheduled in the affected high schools.
Most of the schools, however, reopened by Tuesday with the flood waters receding.
Erosions by the Jamuna partially damaged at least one primary school in Kurigram and another primary school in the district has been on the brink of being devoured by the erosion as the flood waters began to recede.
At least 350 students are attending their classes in these schools in an atmosphere not conducive for education, Kurigram Sadar thana education officer Moslemuddin Shah told New Age.
He said that the matter had been reported to the higher authorities.
New Age correspondent in Kurigram reported that 50 per cent building housing the Beparirchar Government Primary School at Noonkhawa union, Nageswari upazila, had been devoured by erosion.
The Brahmaputra bank is getting eroded and the scene of erosion is barely 300 yards from Raghurvita Government Primary School, said Md Abdul Jalil, member of Kurigram Zila Parishad.
The mid-term exams in two subjects had to be rescheduled at five high schools at Durarabazar, said Sunamganj district education officer Jahangir Alam.
He said that about 3,500 students would appear in the rescheduled exams later.
Sunamganj district primary education officer Panchanon Bala said that the classes of 120 primary schools across the district were suspended for three days.
‘Teachers have been instructed to take compensatory classes of about 15,000 affected students,’ he said.
New Age correspondent in Lalmonirhat reported that the Char Dawabari Government Primary School was partially damaged by floods and that on Tuesday the teachers resumed taking classes after a break of 11 days.
Classes in five other primary schools in Mohishkhocha, Mogolhat, and Kulaghat upazilas of the Lalmonirhat district were suspended for seven to eight days, said district primary education officer Nobez Uddin Sarkar.
Lalmonirhat district education officer Azizul Islam said that the mid-term exam in one subject had to be suspended at one high school.
The exam would be rescheduled, he said.
Major rivers began to recede, the Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre said Wednesday.
The rivers would continue to recede over the next 48 hours, said the FFWC.
According to an FFWC bulletin issued Wednesday afternoon the Surma river was still flowing above its danger level at Sunamganj and the Jamuna above its danger mark at Kazipur, Sirajganj.
