A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Ministries of Education and Labour and Social Security, aimed at increasing attendance among students in four high schools in Clarendon.
The pilot project, which is dubbed, ‘School wi Seh’, is an initiative of the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH) and is expected to last for one year.
The four schools targeted are: Edwin Allen High, Kemps Hill High, Claude Mackay High and Central High Schools.
Speaking at the signing in Kingston yesterday, Labour and Social Security minister Derrick Kellier, said the campaign’s goal is to increase attendance in schools by 10 per cent over a one year period, through a Compliance Intervention Strategy.
He says the intervention strategy seeks to empower schools to address the issue of compliance among PATH beneficiaries, by providing them with up to $500,000 to develop and implement localised interventions.
Under the initiative, each school will be required to develop a work plan, based on its own peculiarities.
