Guidelines for the Absorption of a Private School by Government in Ghana
The National School Inspectorate Authority (NaSIA) has outlined certain Guidelines for the Absorption of a Private School by the Government in Ghana.
For a school to be absorbed, a School Proprietor should willingly decide to give his/her school out to the Government of Ghana Public Education System to absorb and operate it forever.
To qualify for absorption into the public education system, a Proprietor must be licensed by NaSIA.
As required by the Ghana Education Service (GES), the School Proprietor and School Leadership would need to sign a document to the effect that:
- No compensation would be paid to any School Proprietor(s) upon the absorption of the school.
- The GES reserves the right to alter the current name of the school to reflect the wider societal interest if deemed appropriate.

Step 1: The School Proprietor must complete and submit the Notice of Intent to be Absorbed (NoIA) Form and the following supporting documents:
- Final Account: Submit either a Final Account Document which includes [the Notes to Accounts, Receipts and Payments, Revenue and Expenditure
- b. Financial Statement (Balance Sheet), Cashflow, Trial Balance] or submit each document required in the Final Accounts document, in the brackets above, individually.
This application must be submitted at least one academic year before the intended year of absorption. The submission of this application is meant to inform NaSIA of the Proprietor’s intention and does not attract any fee.
Step 2: NaSIA reviews submitted NoIA and supporting documents.
Step 3: NaSIA constitutes an Inspection Panel (IP) to conduct a Whole School Inspection to gather enough evidence about the school, its current state, and the community it serves. The IP will communicate its findings to the Inspector General of Schools (IGS) through an Inspection report.
Step 4: Subsequently, NaSIA shall interview the School Proprietor to discuss details of the application, submitted documents, and the Whole School Inspection report. The School Proprietor is to come along with original copies of all submitted documents
After the Whole School Inspection, if the School Proprietor decides to rescind his/her decision to be absorbed, the cost of the inspection will be surcharged to the proprietor by NaSIA.
Step 5: NaSIA takes a decision based on Inspection Findings together with representatives from the Ministry of Education and all key Agencies of the Ministry.
Step 6: NaSIA communicates the intention of the School Proprietor, information gathered, the decision made, and recommendations to the Minister, GES, and other key Agencies under the Ministry.
