- Government has released the list of all 400 Senior High Schools to operate the double-track system
- The list means government is keen on implementing the new system amid concerns
Government has officially released a list of Senior High Schools that will operate under the double-track system of education.
Last month, government announced that the double-track system will be deployed, starting with the upcoming academic year in September.
The double track system, government said, is being deployed as a means of addressing challenges with the implementation of the free SHS policy.
This particular system of education divides the entire student body and staff into two different tracks; so while one track is in school, the other is on vacation.
The government has now announced that some 400 out of the 696 public high schools have been selected to operate the system.
President Akufo-Addo has previously stated that not all SHSs will deploy the double-track system of education.
He explained that it will only be applicable in schools facing infrastructure challenges due to a large number of students admitted
The 400 listed schools will accommodate the over 180,000 students who are expected to gain admission into SHS this year.
Islamic Senior High in the Kumasi Metropolis in the Ashanti Region will have the highest number of intake with a proposed new entry of 3,362 students.
