Second cycle schools in the Upper East Region were scheduled to reopen but were temporarily shutdown due to unpaid feeding grants
The inability of the SHSs to admit all students on the re-opening day, May 4, 2017, was as a result of the non-payment of three-and-half terms feeding subsidies owed them by the government.
However, the government has release GH¢106,697,628 for the settlement of feeding grant arrears for second cycle schools in the three regions of northern Ghana.
CHASS in a statement said "All students must report to their various schools and be present for roll call at 5pm. All students who still owe school and PTA fees must come along with the money to settle their indebtedness."
Below is CHASS full statement:
