List of 400 Senior High Schools released for double track system

The government has released a list of Senior High Schools that will be captured under the much-touted double-track system of enrollment.

Beginning September 2018, some second cycle schools in Ghana will run a semester module as part of moves to address infrastructural challenges brought on by the Free SHS programme.

To this end, some 400 out of the 696 public SHSs have been selected to operate the system.

The schools will accommodate the over 180,000 students who are expected to gain admission into SHS this year.

This, the government says will ensure the fulfilment of its promise of providing equal opportunity for every Ghanaian child to gain access to secondary education.

The government rolled out the Free SHS policy in September 2017 in fulfilment of its campaign promise in the build to the 2016 general election.

The policy has so far increased enrollment in SHSs by about 90,000 students.

But less than a year after its implementation, a number of challenges such as the non-availability of space have forced the government to adopt a new mode of operation for second-cycle institutions – the double track system to take effect in September 2018.

But according to the list, the double intake will bring the total of newly proposed enrollment to 387, 592 students, with 193,796 as the total double intake per track.

Islamic Senior High in the Kumasi Metropolis in the Ashanti Region will have the highest number of intake with a proposed new entry of 3, 362 students.
