(KZN.RU, May 20, Ksenia Shvetsova). On June 26, Kazan will hold a big prom night instead of a city holiday of the last bell. Ilnar Khidiyatov, the head of the Department of Education, announced this at the Business Monday today.
He explained that they made this decision in order not to distract graduates before exams. The last bell for Kazan graduates will ring only on school lineups, which will be held on May 23 and 25. “The examination time for ninth-graders will start on May 24, and for graduates on May 27”, said I. Khidiyatov.
The decision to cancel the citywide last bell was made jointly with the teaching staff, school principals and students themselves, said Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan. “The last bell will definitely be held in each school. But in general, this is the right decision. We won’t distract them before exams”, he said. “We will try to organize a big beautiful holiday after the results of the exams passed”.
In total, about 17 thousand students will take part in the state final certification this year.
