On the approval of the Managing Director of Punjab Education Foundation (PEF), Manzar Javed Ali, the fourth phase of the Initiative to Replace Cancelled Schools (IRCS) has been launched wherein new schools will be open on 51 sites in the Punjab province.

Through the programme, applications will be accepted from across Punjab to open schools in areas where partnerships of several institutions were cancelled under programmes such as Foundation Assisted School (FAS), Education Voucher Scheme (EVS) and New School Programmes (NSP).

Aiming to protect the academic future of the children in those towns, Manzar Javed Ali, the managing director, has accorded approval to the recommendation suggesting the opening of new schools.

Under the project, school owners on the sites of recently cancelled schools will submit applications requesting acceptance. Incomplete applications will not be entertained, but those rejected in previous phases are encouraged to apply.

The last date for submission of online applications is January 27. Interested candidates are also required to submit the documents to the respective programme directors at PEF head office in Lahore by January 30.

PEF is working for the provision of education as per public private partnership plan in Punjab and providing education to more than 2.7 million children.
