If the government does not release funds for food supplies, the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) in the Northern Region has threatened to interrupt the academic calendar.
“On the foregoing, we wish to state that if we do not get immediate releases of the SHS students of the single track schools who would be due to return to school tomorrow, Tuesday, August 16, 2022, would not report until we get money. This also includes those in the transitional schools who are billed to report on September 4, 2022,” part of a Statement issued by CHASS said.
CHASS claims that because of the outstanding balance, suppliers who offer credit for perishable goods like eggs and meat are unable to continue their delivery.
The leaders in the area made hints that money for perishable meals had not been paid for nearly eleven weeks of the first semester of the academic year 2021–2022.
