The National Association of Private School Owners (NAPPS) in Lagos state has said that high school students will resume on August 3.
Amusa Olawale, president of the NAPSS, Lagos state chapter, revealed this at a press conference on Friday.
According to Olawale, there was a plan to ensure that the West African Upper Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is taken in September.
“At the last meeting the Southwest Governors had with the Education Commissioners, they discussed how WASSCE would be conducted in September, because if these students do not sit for the exam, the 2020/2021 session will be seriously affected.” he said.
Olawale added that the Lagos State Ministry of Education had given them permission to resume as long as the necessary guidelines are met.
“We had a meeting with the Director General, Quality Assurance, Lagos State Ministry of Education and we will resume on August 3.
“We have been authorized to reopen schools, but if a school does not meet the requirements, they will not be allowed to resume.
“For this reason, we also established a NAPPS quality assurance committee to go around and ensure that our members meet these requirements,” he added.
This is a piece of good news
