Mohammed Darwish, Chief of Regulations and Permits Commission confirms:
KHDA is currently in the process of regulating all the costs currently incurred by the parents at Dubai’s private schools. As always, no extra fees can be introduced by schools without KHDA’s prior approval. In case of a situation where schools needs approval for services they are offering, they should continue to offer the services uninterrupted until the cost is verified and the approval is obtained.
Recently there have been cases where some schools have continued with fee related irregularities. KHDA does not tolerate such behaviour and has been imposing punitive actions on schools that have continued the fee related non-adherences.
Schools must get KHDA’s prior approval on all fees they are currently charging parents or planning to introduce.
