According to a communiqué published on the website of the Ministry of National Education, the school year for (2012-2013) will start on Monday, September 12th for primary school and September 13th, 2012 for middle and high school.
The ministry’s statement, issued on Wednesday, August 29th, added that the educational and administrative staff will resume work on Monday, September 3rd, while teachers will join their schools on Tuesday, September 4th.
The statement pointed out that the process of registration and re-registration will continue between September 3rd and 8th for students who were unable to register during the first period of July 2012.
Taking into account the financial conditions of some families, and in order to encourage families to send their children to school, the ministry extended the period of paying the registration fees until the end of November, 2012.
The ministry called on parents of students to ensure that their daughters and sons join their schools on the aforementioned date, urging all educational actors, including teachers, administrative staff and all intervening parties in the educational affairs to intensify their efforts in order to ensure a successful start of the school year in due course.
Concerning the new academic year (2012-2013) it seems that it won’t pass under normal circumstances because of the new measures recently implemented by some universities that have caused students and some university teachers to bristle with rage.
For this reason, Lahcen Daoudi delegated to the ministry of interior full supervision of the starting procedures of the new academic year, allowing the said ministry to intervene to crack down any suspected students’ activities.
Lahcen Daoudi, Minister of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Training held a meeting on Tuesday evening August 28th, at the Ministry of Interior in Rabat, with Mohand Laenser, Interior Minister and Cherqi Driss, Minister Delegate of the Interior, in order to discuss security measures to be taken by the coming academic year.
According to a communiqué issued by the Ministry of the Interior, the trilateral meeting focused particularly on security measures aimed at maintaining public order in universities and its campuses.
