When the school is Section 21 it means the following:
[sociallocker id=”101861″]Section 21 Schools are allocated finances by the department and are responsible for ordering stationery, textbooks, paying water and lights accounts and undertaking their own maintenance. They can also decide on what subjects the school can offer and what sports and other extramural activities the learners can take.[/sociallocker]
When a school is not a Section 21, its budget is administered by the district office. School governing bodies (SGB) are already undergoing financial management training.
