The policy will be implemented in schools with overflowing class sizes some of which have been as high as 120 students since the government made secondary school education free last September.

“Some schools have extra capacity because they have less population…so there will be no need to practice the system there”, he said.

The double track system is expected to divide the entire student body and staff into two different tracks. So while one track is in school, the other is on vacation.

In the single-track system, students and staff are in school or vacation at the same time within an academic year.

The new policy comes as government braces for another huge intake at the second cycle institutions after government picked up the bill in fulfillment of its free SHS policy.
