Education, Youth & Sports

The Education, Youth and Sports Department primarily assists in the formulation and implementation of policies on education in the Assembly within the framework of national policies and guidelines.

It also has an advisory role in the Assembly on matters relating to pre-school, primary, and Junior High Schools in the District and other matters that may be referred to it by the Assembly. The department also encourages and reports on the implementation of policies and matters relating to basic education in accordance with the report format provided by the minister. The educational institutions are distributed among ten (10) circuits in the district. The circuits are Charikpong, Jang, Kaleo, Nadowli, Nator, Sankana, Kalsegra, Sombo, Takpo and Naro. There is a relatively fair distribution of educational institutions among the circuits as far as basic educational institutions are concerned.
