The National Parenting Support Commission, an agency of the Ministry of Education, Youth & Information continues to employ efforts to ensure parents remain our solid partner in education, especially as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

We recognise the importance of providing continued support and information to parents as they prepare for the new school year. We know the concerns are many and so clear and key information will assist parents in making pertinent decisions that will promote the best interest of their children.

To this end, the Ministry of Education, Youth & Information and the National Parenting Support Commission in partnership with the National Parent Teachers Association of Jamaica (NPTAJ) will be hosting a series of high priority information sessions, as a precursor to back-to-school September 2020.

The sessions will highlight and explain fully the schooling modalities/blended approaches that have been approved as the options for schools. This includes:

1. Rotational Approach

2. Extended Day Approach

3. Whole Day Approach

4. Home Schooling

5. Online Learning

The MoEYI/NPSC and the NPTAJ urge all parents to attend the sessions via zoom platform on the dates as follow:
