Parents will now have access to all fee-related information for private schools in Dubai through the School Fees Fact Sheet.
Introduced by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), the document includes all mandatory and optional fees that schools may charge during an academic year.
It was introduced earlier this year to coincide with the beginning of the academic year for schools offering the Indian and Pakistani curriculums, and is now available for all private schools in Dubai.
The fact sheet will list all approved fees and costs, such as transportation, extra-curricular activities, school trips and books, to name a few.
It will also be included in the annual Parent-School Contract.
“The Fact Sheet not only gives parents accurate and up-to-date information on all the fees they could be expected to pay, it also enables parents and schools to better focus on children’s learning,” said Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Director General of the KHDA.
Earlier this year, the School Fees Fact Sheet was rolled out to 81,000 students across 35 schools in Dubai.
Schools starting their academic year in September 2022 will get access to the service from this week and parents will receive an SMS with the link to their school’s fact sheet.
It can also be accessed on the KHDA’s website.
