LEAD School’s Statement on Pragyata The MHRD guidelines clearly

LEAD School’s Statement on Pragyata The MHRD guidelines clearly define synchronous and asynchronous learning. The restrictions suggested by MHRD are applicable on synchronous learning and not on asynchronous learning. Synchronous learning is “real-time teaching and learning that can happen collaboratively and at the same time with a group of online learners or even individually, and usually a teacher, or some method of instant feedback”. Asynchronous learning is anytime, anywhere but not connected in real time. The time limits recommended by MHRD are as follows:

Class Synchronous learning time per day Asynchronous learning time per day 30 minutes No limits prescribed Class 1 to 8 90 minutes No limits prescribed Class 9 to 12 180 minutes No limits prescribed LEAD School’s method of learning is asynchronous. Students can access learning

Class            Synchronous learning time per day                   Asynchronous learning time per day

Pre-primary                 30 minutes                                                       No limits prescribed
Class 1 to 8                   90 minutes                                                       No limits prescribed
Class 9 to 12                 180 minutes                                                     No limits prescribed


LEAD School’s method of learning is asynchronous. Students can access learning content
through the LEAD Parent App “anytime, and anywhere”. For the duration of our online classes, in addition to MHRD guidelines, we have also looked at guidelines issued by WHO on screen time and used data from our own experience of running the largest online school with over 3,00,000 students and over 18 million class views to ensure following class duration with adequate breaks:

Class                                                LEAD Sc hool@Home learning time per day
Pre-primary                                    Integrated Curriculum, Parent Assisted
                                                         Total: 30 minutes

Class 1 to 5                                     English, Math, EVS classes per day
                                                        Total duration: 90 to 120 minutes

Class 6 to 8                                    English, Math, Science, Social Science classes per day
                                                       Total duration: 120 to 160 minutes      

Class 9                                           English, Math, Science, Social Science classes per day
                                                       Total duration: 120 to 160 minutes      


Our team is closely monitoring the government regulations and we have a team of
experts working tirelessly to ensure we continue to offer ‘uninterrupted learning’ to
our students
