The National Schools Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) has disclosed that unlicensed pretertiary schools would be deemed to be operating illegally.
This was disclosed at the ongoing nationwide media awareness campaign and stakeholder engagements organized by NaSIA, in Kasoa at the Royal Dede Hotel.
In a Facebook post by NaSIA, it said the Pretertiary schools include both public and private schools from Kg to the Senior High School Level.
The authority has advised all school owners to take proactive steps to ensure they register their schools to avoid operating as an illegal entity in the country.
It made reference to the Education Regulatory Bodies Act 1023, Assented into Law by the President on August 26, 2020.
Unlicensed Pretertiary schools are therefore to contact the authority for assistance.
In a related development NaSIA has published the procedures for registering schools with the authority:
