PR – Due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development, Religious Affairs and Information has advised all schools against the issuing of paper-based end-of-term reports, for the culmination of the 2019/2020 academic year.
Having due regard for the established reporting requirements, this Ministry has recommended that school reports be prepared and dispatched electronically, in accordance with Section 23, subsections (2)-(5) of the Education Act (2002).
For schools without an electronic report card, templates have been provided to schools, for their adaptation and use.
Proper arrangements must be made for the distribution of paper-based reports, only where this is absolutely necessary. However, this must be done by scheduling, and in accordance with guidelines from the Ministry of Health.
This Ministry remains grateful for the kind cooperation of all parties involved.
