According to bank documents, the Project Objective is to improve quality of science and mathematics instruction in Community Day Secondary Schools (CDSSs) and increase access to secondary education in selected remote areas.
The three components under the parent project will be maintained, and AF activities mainstreamed into existing subcomponents in line with the request of the Government. The AF is distributed across the three components as follows: Component 1 – US$2.13 million; Component 2 – US$2.43 million; and Component 3 – US$0.44 million. The proposed changes to the components will be as follows:
Sub-component 1.1: Ensuring minimum standards to quality instruction of mathematics and sciences CDSSs (Total after Additional Financing: US$17.63 million; US$15.5 million Original Financing; US$2.13 million Additional Financing). Building on the design of this subcomponent, which focuses on provision of textbooks to students and guidebooks to teachers; orientation of science and mathematics teachers to the revised curriculum; and training school heads and deputies in school management and instructional leadership, this subcomponent will support (a) improving health security of the school environment to facilitate learning under the Government’s COVID-19 recommended operations standards.
Component 2: Enhancing equitable access to secondary education (Total after Additional Financing: US$53.88 million; US$51.45 million Original Financing; US$2.43 million Additional Financing). Component 2 seeks to increase the streams for delivery of secondary education, expand capacity of the existing streams, and increase opportunities for needy and vulnerable students. Expected changes in the subcomponents are as follows:
Sub-component 2.1: Strengthening system level strategic reforms for efficient expansion of secondary education (Total after Additional Financing: US$11.32 million; US$11.05 million Original Financing; US$0.27 million Additional Financing).
Sub-component 2.2: Increasing equitable opportunities for secondary education access (Total after Additional Financing: US$11.37 million; US$10.9 million Original Financing; US$0.47 million Additional Financing).
Sub-component 2.3: Upgrading and expansion of secondary schools (Total after Additional Financing: US$31.19 million; US$29.5 million Original Financing; US$1.69 million Additional Financing).
Sub-component 3.1: Strengthening the human capacity to support project implementation. (US$6.63 million Original Financing; No Additional Financing). There are no additional activities for this subcomponent.
Sub-component 3.2: Improve and digitized secondary inspection system and digitized EMIS. (US$2.14 million Original Financing; No Additional Financing). There are no additional activities for this subcomponent.
