«The last academic year was not easy for us. The format of our work has changed dramatically. You have provided a high level of quality in online education. Each of you approached the matter with a soul and coped with the task one hundred percent. This is confirmed by the successful passing of the Unified State Exam. It is gratifying that Ufa has increased the number of 100-point students based on the USE results. Out of 126 republican hundred-point works, 61 were completed by students of Ufa schools.

To preserve the health of children and counter the spread of coronavirus infection, medical inspectors are starting to work in educational institutions of the city from September 1. We must prepare for different circumstances and different scenarios for the development of the situation.
