After six months of putting education services to a halt due to #COVID19, It has finally been resolved by the Government to have them reopened on September 20.
This development comes after the education minister, Mrs Janet Museveni, wrote to finance minister, Matia Kasaija, asking him to release capitation grants for third term to the beneficiary schools.
In the letter, Mrs Museveni says: “I refer to the meeting held on September 1, 2020 by H.E the President and the National COVID-19 Task Force at State House Entebbe.
“The meeting resolved that a phased re-opening of schools, starting with candidates be implemented starting September 20, 2020” the letter reads.
However, this will start with candidate classes and finalists in universities in respect of the #COVID19 standard operating procedures.
