ADEC sets new rules for private schools

The Abu Dhabi Educational Council (Adec) has said that the number of days of the school year in private schools should not be less than 175 days, and each school has to apply for an approval for its calendar with the council, eight months before the beginning of the school year, Gulf Today has reported. According to the new rules, private schools are banned from operating during the official holidays, which are determined by the emirate, unless they obtain a written permit from the council in advance.
