Lusaka - School Report Question and Answers

How is the overall communication between teachers and parents, and the administration and parents? How is communication facilitated?

Very poor. I believe the primary side has better communication, but it is poorly handled in the secondary side. There is a newsletter and the school relies on parents reading that. The school uses Managebac for everything, homework, formatives, summative and report cards. But since everything is there, teachers are not encouraged to include details. Unless you sync your calendar with Managebac, you need to check every other day to see what work is due. There are no task sheets or information provided for summative, which makes it difficult to help your child study and when the grades are placed, there is no feedback so you are unsure what went well or what needs improving upon. - May 2019

C- In secondary, as is the case at many schools, the parents teachers need to contact are non-responsive. - Apr 2016
