COLOMBO (News 1st); The Education Ministry said that a program was implemented to temporarily attach teachers to schools convenient for them due to transportation difficulties.

The program will take place until the 31st of December 2022.

The Education Ministry said that teachers will be given the said transfer ONLY on the written consent of the principals of both schools.

The Education Director will be given the power to assign teachers between National Schools in the same province, and between National Schools and Provincial Schools.

For assignments between provinces, approval from the Secretary to the Provincial Public Services Commission is required.

For assignment between National Schools in two separate provinces, permission from the Direction of Education at the Ministry of Education is required.

If the teacher who is applying for the assignment is an additional staffer, no replacement is required.

However, if the applicant is NOT an additional staffer, a replacement is mandatory.

The Education Ministry said these assignments are NOT transfers to new schools.
