The National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) has cautioned private Pre-Tertiary Education Institutions (PTEIs) to with immediate effect quit offering in-person vacation classes to unapproved learners on campus.
The Authority’s warning follows reports that some PTEIs have reopened their schools for in-person vacation classes for learners in Lower Primary to Senior High School other than those in JHS 2 and SHS 2.
Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo in his 16th televised nation’s address directed for schools to be reopened to solely second-year students in Junior and Senior High School and for the rest to reopen in January 2021
NaSIA in line with Akufo-Addo’s directive has advised private PTEls acting in contradiction the directive including those offering in-person vacation classes (to learners other than those in JHS 2 and SHS 2/International Curricular equivalents) to stop their activities with Immediate effect.
The National Schools Inspectorate Authority in a statement shared with Georgeweb.org indicated any PTEI that acts contrary to the President’s directive will be made to shut down indefinitely.
Parents have similarly been advised not to send their wards who are not in JHS 2 or SHS 2 (or international Curricular equivalents) to school until otherwise indicated by the President.
