The state government had directed schools to resume academic activities on Tuesday, January 4th, 2022.
Lagos state government made a statement on January 8th, 2022, that schools that failed to resume academic activities on Tuesday, January 4th, 2022, will face disciplinary action.
The Director-General, Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, revealed that the level of compliance to the directive from the state government was low.
Seriki-Ayeni said the state had compiled the names of schools that refused to comply with the directive.
“Last term, it was observed that despite extensive sensitisation on the importance of having a synchronised school calendar, many schools refused to comply with the mid-term break as mandated in accordance with the academic calendar.
“During our recent exercise to monitor the level of compliance with Tuesday 4th January 2022 resumption date, we observed that the level of compliance was low.
“We are going to notify the schools that have not adhered to the academic calendar with ‘Notice of Non-Compliance’ stickers, and issue letters of invitation to the administrators to visit our office in Alausa where further disciplinary actions will be taken.”
The 2021/2022 harmonised school calendar is formulated to ensure uniformity of schedule in the education sector.
