By this directive all continuing students of Senior High Schools are to report for school on September 27, 2010.
Initially, boarding students were supposed to report for school on September 11 with the day students reporting on September 13.
The reason for rescheduling the opening date is due to the fact that most of the Senior High Schools would be used to train facilitators for the upcoming 2010 Census, the President of Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools, Mr Samuel Ofori-Adjei, confirmed to the Daily Graphic.
He gave an assurance that the 40 weeks for the academic year would be covered, adding that the two weeks that would be missed would be catered for in the second and third terms.
“There would not be any loss in contact time,” he emphasised.
At a press conference on the 2010 computerised placements, the GES said efforts were being made to ensure that first-year students were in school for the commencement of the 2010/2011 academic year by October 15, 2010.
