GES threatens to Sanction Heads who kept Free SHS returns by Friday

Headmasters from the Public Senior High Schools in the Country are expected to release returns on funds released by government for the implementation of the Free High School Program to the Ghana Education Service by Friday, January 12,2018 or face sanctions.

This information was made public by the Newly appointed Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Education Service, Miss Cassandra Twum Ampofo on Citi FM, an Accra based radio station.

According to the PRO,only 117 Headteachers have filed their returns out of the over 500 schools which received funds in November 2017.

The Ghana Education Service has indicated that the submission of the returns is to ensure the disbursement of additional funds for the feeding and the general upkeep of students in the various schools.

The PRO made it clear that the Service intends to crack down on the Heads who fail to submit their returns by the end of the week.

She emphasized, thatthe GES will sanction any headteacher who fails to heed the directive as any further delays in the submission of the returns would prevent the timely disbursement of funds to those schools, ultimately affecting the students negatively.

“If you do not submit the returns by Friday then I’m afraid you are telling us that you don’t want to obey simple instructions and we would have to also go through the necessary administrative processes and find out why. There are sanctions though, a number of them, but it’s not limited to moving a headmaster or headmistress,” she said.

“We do not want the negligence of any heads to affect the students, so we have given them up to 5:00pm on Friday to submit their returns. If you do not submit the returns, then you are telling us that you are ready to face any sanctions thereof. We’ll not take it lightly at all” she noted.
