Students awaiting transfers to begin online classes


    The Ministry of Education says feedback on requests for transfers for Form One students will begin on November 23rd.

    The Ministry of Education says all form one students must begin their virtual school sessions on Monday 19th October, regardless if they are awaiting feedback on requests for transfers.

    These students would have written the SEA exam this year and received their results recently, with approximately 4,000 transfers requested.

    Parents must also note that transfers are not guaranteed.

    The Ministry says the granting of a transfer is dependent on the availability of space in the requested schools and student’s performance, change of address, medical condition and special needs.

    It says feedback on requests on Nov. 23rd will be available at the respective Education District Offices.

    The Ministry adds that only students awaiting transfer results will not be required to purchase uniforms and books of the assigned school.
