Following the dialogue between the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the National Executives of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), the Director-General of the GES has instructed all Head of schools not to prevent any student from writing the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) for non-payment of school fees.

Further, the Director-General directs all heads of schools to collect all approved fees in full except feeding fees for the third term which should be pro-rated (that is paid based on the number of weeks or days the final year students stay in school during the third term of the 2016/2017 academic year.
