The project fee this year for elementary schools is K20.00, primary schools K60.00, secondary schools K220.00, vocational schools K200.00, Special Education K40.00 and K20.00 for each subject for FODE programs.
And the amounts remain the same for all the schools in the National Education System in the country.
Education Minister Jimmy Uguro said the amounts mentioned is what the Provincial Education Board is supposed to apply in schools all over the country.
Responding to a supplementary question in parliament yesterday on whether the fee amounts are the same in all the schools around the country, Mr Uguro said the project fees are paid using a guideline.
“There are three set of guidelines used to determine the amount of the project fees,” Mr Uguro said.
“Number one, the school must have a School Learning Improvement Program (SLIP) Plan, where parents, teachers and the school’s board of management discuss together and design a project.
“Number two, there must be a project plan and number three, the school must have a scope and budget for that particular project.”
He further said the SLIP Plan and the two other guidelines must then be approved by the authorities which is the Department of Education before it goes to the Provincial Education Board to apply charges.
