School Functionality Monitoring Programme Follow-up Visits Receive Feedback on Progress Made in the Implementation of Resolutions taken in January 2022.
In the year since the last visits, the Schools Functionality Monitoring Program (SFMP) has proven to have made a significant positive impact on the delivery of quality education in KZN in critical areas such as teaching and learning, school infrastructure, school management and governance , performance, discipline and stakeholder relations.
The SFMP follow-up programme is designed to track and monitor the implementation of resolutions taken at the beginning of the year, during the first academic term visits. It also accommodates, assesses and deals with new issues that might have transpired since the last visits.
The purpose of the follow-up programme is precisely to:
1 . Assess the extent to which the department addressed the challenges identified in January 2022;
2. Focus on areas in which the department managed to address challenges;
3. Focus on areas in which the department failed to address challenges;
4. Identify contributing factors for failure to attend to challenges by any department;
5. Ascertain commitment between different levels of the department on addressing challenges; and
6. Assess systematic challenges that hindered progress on implementation of the resolutions.
A Multiparty delegation of Members of the Legislature were deployed into 24 teams that visited 94 schools in all KZN Districts, and the Metro in January 2022 and the SFMP follow-up programme took place on 06 and 07 September 2022.
A report with findings indicating progress on implementation of the January 2022 resolutions, findings on new issues such as curriculum coverage and examination readiness, and new resolutions (Sept 2022) will compiled and adopted by the Education Portfolio Committee then debated and adopted in the House and referred to the department for implementation.
