The heads also appealed to the Minister of Local Government to direct the Regional Coordinating Councils to liaise with the Metro/Municipal/District Chief Executives to release part of their Disability Common Fund for the development of Special Schools in their respective regions.

These were contained in a communiqué issued in Koforidua and signed by Mrs Immaculate Atoriyah, chairman, COHESS, after the 29th four-day annual conference.

It appealed to the GES as a matter of urgency to respond to a letter written by the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) to the Director General of the GES for clearance for Special Schools to use the Low Value Procurement Forms and also initiate training programmes for heads and accountants of special schools.

On sports and culture, the communiqué urged that sports and cultural festivals should be organized and funded by the GES for all Special Schools.
