The Ministry of Education, in a press release, announced the completion of all procedures related to welcoming students for the second semester, including supplying textbooks, allocating classrooms, and organizing teaching staff at schools. All textbooks will be available on the first day of classes, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

The ministry emphasized that the difference in this year's academic calendars is due to the implementation of the national therapeutic intervention program by government schools.

This program is applied throughout the year by dedicating the first ten minutes of the math class and two sessions of the Arabic language per week to implement program activities. This measure requires an increase in the actual school days to avoid impacting the teaching of the current curriculum.
