The Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has given Senior High Schools (SHSs) in the three regions of northern Ghana, Monday, May 22, 2017, to reopen for the third term of the 2016/2017 academic year.

The inability of the SHSs to admit all students on the re-opening day, May 4, 2017, was as a result of the non-payment of three-and-half terms feeding subsidies owed them by the government.

CHASS in a statement said "All students must report to their various schools and be present for roll call at 5pm. All students who still owe school and PTA fees must come along with the money to settle their indebtedness."
