Full announcement by the Minister of Education Evis Kushi:
Dear students, teachers and parents,
After a consultation with the National Council of Pre-University Education, with teachers, parents, as well as education experts, I would like to inform you that we have just approved the Guide developed by the Agency for Quality Assurance in Pre-University Education (ASCAP) “On Improving Achievements of students as a result of the situation created by the COVID-19 pa pandemic. Its purpose is to enable students for a two-week period in early September 2021 to repeat, reinforce or improve their knowledge of the deficiencies identified during the previous school year.
Regarding the topics that will be developed, they will be in the form of consultations and depending on the identified needs for each school. In this context, students are free to follow them according to their needs, while parents are asked to cooperate for the successful realization of this process.
Maximally appreciating their commitment and dedication over a difficult year, teachers who will develop repetition topics during this period will be paid extra hours. Meanwhile, in order to develop an optimal process, we ask the local self-government bodies to take the necessary measures so that the school infrastructure is ready for September 1, 2021.
For more detailed information about this process, in the following links you can find the complete guide for each cycle of the pre-university system. Many successes and prosperity!
