For schools under Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) having entered into a service agreement (SA) with the Government, a Comprehensive Review (CR) on their performance is required.
About Quality Assurance of Schools under DSS
Upon conducting CR and renewing the SA with the Government, schools under DSS are required to undergo External School Review (ESR). While the timing for conducting ESR has been set out in the renewed SA, the procedures and requirements of ESR for DSS schools will be the same as those for public sector schools. For DSS schools not bound by SA with the Government, the overall arrangements for conducting ESR will be the same as those for public sector schools.
