The Directorate of Curriculum and Teacher Education Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Abbottabad has undertaken the development of Accelerated Academic Calendar as part of the overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The school year 2020-21 has been shortened considerably due to the closures of schools resulting from the outbreak. Therefore, it is imperative that schools shall implement an academic calendar designed to ensure coverage of all essential skills related to knowledge, skills and attitudes in a shortened academic year. This Accelerated Academic Calendar (AAC) will provide the schools and students with a roadmap of learning for the academic year 2020-21 only. It will also provide the teachers with the guidelines to implement the AAC and will provide base for annual examination of SSC 2021.
