The Lagos State Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA) has frowned at the non-compliance with the stipulated academic calendar by some schools in the state, just as it begins the compilation of names of schools that refused to comply with the January 4, 2022, resumption date.

The Director-General of OEQA, Mrs. Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, in a statement, reiterated that part of the mandate of the office was to develop a harmonised school calendar in conjunction with stakeholders in the sector to ensure compliance.

She stressing that the monitoring exercise embarked upon by the agency’s officials was to appraise the level of compliance with the resumption date, students’ presence and COVID-19 safety protocols.

Revealing that some schools disobeyed the directive, the DG explained that the Year 2021/2022 harmonised school calendar was developed in conjunction with stakeholders in June 2021, to ensure uniformity in the system.

Mrs. Abiola Seriki-Ayeni said the agreement was communicated to all schools and associations to ensure equal educational standards and learning systems.
