Inspectorate

Indicators under Inspectorate

 Inspector: Primary School ratio: 67:1

 Number of schools Inspected in 2015/16 financial year: Data not available

 Number of school inspectors 03

Conclusion: The education department is one of the biggest departments in Kibaale district and takes one of the biggest shares of the district budget. The sub counties of Kyebando and Matale still have primary schools with a walking distance of more than 5kms; this is a challenge to the school going children of these areas. School coverage is still low in many parts of the district and this calls for more efforts and emphasis from the ministry of Education to support establishment of government schools in the district.
