Public school staff will be responsible for keeping their school websites up to date, a ministry spokeswoman said.

She added that the Ministry of Education’s website and individual school websites would be updated for the start of the new school year.

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, said last month that work had begun to update the Ministry of Education website.

He said: “Currently, the Department of Education is training school staff to operate the back end of the site.

“We look forward to unveiling the website for the upcoming 2019-20 academic year.”

The spokeswoman confirmed that school staff would be told to make sure individual school websites in the education ministry domain had regular updates.

She said: “Each school is expected to keep information on the website up to date utilising the calendar function.

“Updating the website is considered part of the administrative staff’s regular work as it is a method of sharing information from the school with parents and students.”

The spokeswoman said that “designated school staff” were being equipped “with the skills to operate the back end of the website and the process for updating information on a regular basis”.

She added that staff at the education department would be responsible for their website and ministry staff for its site.
