EDUCATION secretary executive officer Mordecai Baine yesterday said classes would still start as scheduled despite counting next week.
He said the Electoral Commission would need to seek permission from the department for any extension for teachers who were taking part as officials in the elections.
Baine said yesterday they were now trying to establish the numbers via respective provincial education advisers.
Some teachers in the nation’s capital are baffled as to whether the extension of counting will affect the start of term three.
One said an extension could be a necessary precautionary measure for the safety of students and teachers in case of violence by supporters of candidates.
