It’s that time of the year again when parents and guardians are anxiously waiting their children’s school report as the 2022 academic year draws to an end.
But, schools have been reminded that they could not withhold learner’s report cards if the pupil’s school fees have not been paid in full.
The law that report cards may not be withheld is informed by Section 29 (12) of the National Protocol on Assessments for Grade R to 12, which prohibits public and private schools from withholding report cards for any reason.
The department stated that schools must find alternative measures to communicate with parents and guardians regarding the issue of school fees not being paid in full.
