Education and Sports

The Directorate of Education is charged with overseeing the implementation of the district and national education policies and plans. It also monitors and evaluates the performance of the education system and school operations to keep required standards within the district. The areas of focus include teachers, pupils, school facilities and parents.

The Directorate also seeks to strengthen the institutional framework for the management of schools and assurance of accountability of public resources in education programmes. The department is one of the best-funded sectors in the district. The District Council equally joins the Government to promote education for all its citizens in partnership with parents and others members of the community. As such, the Government's Education policy is to promote quality basic education by improving access by girls and boys, equity and retention in all Primary schools and other levels of learning.
