ISLAMABAD: Work to upgrade public sector schools in ICT under the second phase of PMERP is likely to be completed by the end of January 2018.

Adviser to Prime Minister on Education Reforms Ali Raza said that renovation of ICT schools under the second phase was originally slated to be completed by the end of December 2017, but the law and order situation in the city delayed the release of funds and in turn delayed work by a month.

The Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD), he said has started work on preparing the project concept-1 for upgrading the remaining 200 schools and colleges under phase-III of the reforms programme. The adviser further said that the CADD secretary has approved two new projects including a teachers training programme and restructuring of theFederal Directorate of Education (FDE).
