A release sighted by websaet.com indicates that the Ghana Education Service is in consultation with relevant stakeholders to present a blueprint document to President Akufo-Addo.
According to the release the blueprint document will guide the reopening of Basic, Junior High and Secondary schools throughout the country.
It will be recall that President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuf-Addo on March 15 this year directed for the closure of all schools throughout the country as part of precautionary measures to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The President in his ninth televised nation’s address to the citizenry of Ghana extended the ban imposed on public gatherings till May 31. He however did not comment on the closure of schools, which directly means the closure is still in force until further notice.
The Ghana Education Service under the auspices of the government has invited stakeholders in the education sector ahead of a possible review and reopening of schools to discuss safety measures upon resuming of schools.
The Education Service has invited relevant stakeholders including the leadership of teachers like GNAT, NAGRAT among others to share opinions on how schools can guarantee the safety and maximum protection should pupils be allowed to return back to classrooms.
The stakeholders are expected to join others on May 19 to tête-à-tête the way forward and also give suggestions which when implemented will ensure that all members are not expose to the deadly novel coronavirus.
