CSSPS: Students Now Allowed 11 Choices for Senior High School Placement

The process of transitioning Junior High School graduates to Senior High Schools through the Computerised School Selection and Placement System has been a source of frustration for parents and students every academic year.

To alleviate this frustration and fatigue, the Computerised School Selection and Placement Centre has introduced a significant change.

This year, students are now allowed to choose up to 11 schools for placement, an increase from the previous limit of six.

Mark Sasu Mensah, the National Coordinator for the Computerised School Selection and Placement Centre, explained during an interview on the JoyNews Desk program that students must initially select six schools from a pool of 928 available schools.

Additionally, they are required to choose five more schools from a specific cluster of options. A comprehensive list of these schools is available in the school registry, which has been distributed to all schools and can also be accessed by parents and guardians through the platform.

The rationale behind this change is to promote fairness and equity within the system.

It aims to prevent situations where students are not placed in any of their initially selected six schools, which often leads to stress for the Centre, the Ministry of Education, students, and their parents.

It is crucial to note that failure to select all five of the compulsory schools, along with specifying the preferred programs of study and residential status for each school choice, will result in an invalid application.

Mr. Mensah emphasized the importance of parents actively participating in the school selection process for their children. This process will take place from September 17th to September 22nd, 2023, at the basic school level.

Overall, a total of 600,714 prospective students are expected to be placed in 928 schools across the country through this revised system
