The Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), upon receipt of one-term feeding grants arrears from the Scholarship Secretariat, has, scheduled to re-open all second cycle institutions in the Upper East Region on the 26th of June,2016.
Senior high schools in the three regions of the North, were owed feeding grants arrears for three terms of 2015/2016 academic year, compelling school authorities to send students home until government settles the arrears for the schools to reimburse their food suppliers to enable them feed the students.
It took public outcry by civil society organizations and pressure groups for government to release GHC44.9 million for the settlement of one-term feeding grant arrears, with two terms pending. Affected students who have been home for over one week, are expected to report back to their various schools on Sunday 26th June,2016.
In a statement issued by the Chairperson of CHASS, Francisca Yinzura, all students are to report to their various schools at 5:00pm on Sunday, 26th June,2016.
