Owais stated during the launch that the maintenance segment was developed to complement the GIS, which was first implemented in 2016 with support from UNESCO, and to link it with the educational management information system for optimal planning of the ministry’s schools and resources at all administrative levels.

Owais drew attention to the need to simplify maintenance procedures at schools to minimize implementation time, stressing the need to train and empower teachers on the use of technology to enable them to carry out such activities.

He indicated that the ministry will complete the implementation of the plan in 42 educational directorates and 4,002 public schools by the end of June 2022.

Owais expressed his appreciation to UNESCO and GIZ for their continued support of the ministry’s development plans and programs.

UNESCO Representative to Jordan Min Jeong Kim congratulated minister Owais on the launch of the smart schools GIS maintenance plan, which will increase the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of applications for school maintenance in Jordan.

The launch included an overview and introduction of the school maintenance segment, and a model of school maintenance automation, as well as how the idea will be mainstreamed across the Kingdom.
