This paper is a case study of Samtse Higher Secondary School to study the impact of the covid-19 pandemic in the school during the year 2020 academic session. The study will assess and evaluate how the school performed in both academic and non-academic by its student and how it was affected by the pandemic in particularly the student learning performance. The paper is a situational analysis of the school remote learning amidst the covid-19 pandemic. The purpose of the paper is to see the relationship of the remote learning with normal learning situation in terms of its efficacy in quality learning of the student. Furthermore, it is also an attempt to understand the school’s strength, weakness, threat and opportunities vis-à-vis the current state of situation and to chart a way forward map for the school to address any short coming due to challenges imposed by the external factors such as this pandemic situation.
For instance, the post 2019, the school saw decreased academic performance and also experienced increased frequency of student staying absent in 2020 year as compared to previous year. The school also experienced increased number of dropout rate of students in 2020 year. There were 13 students who drop out of the school in 2020 academic session which is 2.29% (n = 566 in 2020) which is very alarming figure. Besides, pass percentage of student in class 9 and 11 combined together was just 90.9% which was less than 4.9% as against the pass percentage in year 2019.
Thus, the paper reveals that the intervention such as remote learning strategy during the time of pandemic in 2020 year did not effectively replace the normal classroom teaching learning in terms of its efficacy. The recommendation and the strategy provided through this situational analysis may help to bridge the learning gap and help achieve the overall school goal without
compromising the quality standards and delivery of educational services.
