The Ministry of Education is working on resubmitting 4275 non-approved and incomplete applications for Government’s Back to School Support program.
The Ministry is currently working closely with the Ministry of Finance to ensure that the non-approved applications are corrected and resubmitted for processing so that payments are made at the earliest.
So far, the Ministry has sent in a total of 218,970 applications to the Ministry of Finance for payment processing.
This includes 218,198 from Government-funded schools and 772 from private schools.
Out of the 218,970 applications received, $42.9 million has been paid out to 214,695 applications.
Meanwhile parents and guardians who are yet to receive payments can follow up by sending an email to email@example.com or by contacting the following mobile numbers; 9929775 or 9929780.
Payments for all successful applications will be made by the end of this week.
