There is so much information being propagated about how the virus spreads and infect people, however, most of this information are not scientifically proven and therefore inaccurate. This false information when not managed well will affect the psyche of a child, parents, community and have negative impact on education when schools reopen.In an emergency situation, often than not, efforts to address the situation are not properly coordinated. Different sectors act immediately to address the challenges not from a coordinated approach and sometime leads to duplication of efforts and resources. The MoE/GES will coordinate its response with major players in the education sector including the education sector working group and Development Partners to ensure that we eliminate duplication of efforts in responding to the pandemic.The proposal considers strategies for the immediate and short term need (next 4 to 8 weeks), medium term (3 to 9 months) and a long term strategy (2021 and beyond). This is also segmented by grades as the follows:

a) All KG and Primary School pupils are affected

b) All JHS students are affected

c) All SHS students are affected

Considerations covered review of the existing infrastructure to deliver content and facilitate distance and remote learning on the understanding that as many students as possible are provided with the opportunity to access the content. The next consideration was the content to deliver under the emergency situation and how it can best be packaged for delivery over the existing infrastructure. The infrastructure identified as most appropriate for remote learning for all the grades were Radio, Television and Internet. The strategy for leveraging these different media are presented below.

Radio

The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) has indicated its readiness to collaborate with GES to use Radio as a means of providing content to all levels of students, from KG to SHS. The GBC has the capacity to and shall provide a production studio for radio as well as transmission. These facilities shall be made available to GES. The GBC has also committed to providing the technical support to enable the production and transmission. Additionally, production of appropriate radio content needs

to be done by identifying the right technical assistance and skills to support the MoE and the GES to co-create and produce content for radio. The support of Development partners in identifying the right resources to support radio production is necessary. We believe that radio has a wide reach and can help to bridge the gap on access if it is leveraged effectively.

Television

The GES has further secured the commitment of the GBC to use television as a means to deliver content. The support services include:

i) A 24-hour dedicated channel that will simultaneously be carried on the GBC DTT platform and the National DTT platform as a Free-to-Air Broadcast.

ii) A dedicated studio space at the Broadcasting House at Kanda for the exclusive production of educational content as specified by GES.

iii) Additional production studios has been identified with Plan International to support the production of educational content for television broadcasting.

iv) Available content from CENDLOS for SHS can air immediately a station is launched.
