The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPPS) in Lagos State has said Senior Secondary School students will resume on August 3.
According to the president of NAPPS Lagos Chapter, Amusa Olawale on Friday, he said there was a plan to ensure the West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is conducted in September.
He further added that they have been allowed to re-open schools if the requirements will be appropriately followed.
“In the last meeting the South-West governors had with the commissioners for education, they discussed how WASSCE would be conducted in September, because if these pupils don’t sit for the exam, the 2020/2021 session will be seriously affected,” he said
“We had a meeting with the Director General, Quality Assurance, Lagos State Ministry of Education and we shall be resuming on August 3.
“We have been given clearance for reopening of schools, but if a school does not have the requirements, they won’t be allowed to resume.
“For this reason, we also set up NAPPS quality assurance committee to go round and ensure our members meet up with these requirements,” he added.
