15 May

Due to the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 the beginning of the academic year in Astana can be postponed. This was stated by the Vice-Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan Elmira Sukhanberdieva, the newspaper "Liter" writes.

Negotiations are currently under way on this issue in the ministry and in the department of education of the capital, according to Elmira Suhanberdiyeva.

"Speaking about Astana there is a real chance of a heavy load on the road network in connection with EXPO 2017. In this regards the education department of the capital came up with a proposal that they want to make the first bell on September, 1 as usual, but to start the school year from 12 September ", - the vice-minister explained.

Each city of the country has the right to make a territorial decision to postpone the beginning of the academic year, the deputy minister of education noted.

"We looked at the primary classes, how many additional days they will need. If they study five days a week at the primary stage they will need five additional days, for the upper secondary school - eight additional days. Now the issue of how the topic revision will be organized is still at the negotiation stage", - Suhanberdiyeva added.
