How to track scores of Abu Dhabi school mergers this year: there’s an app for it

Abu Dhabi will host 11 new schools this year, has closed a number of small villa schools, and there will be mergers, or transfer of students in at least 20 of its schools.

So, as a parent, how do track which school your child (and her/his friends) are supposed to report once schools reopen after the summer break, and where exactly is that school located?

Simple, use Abu Dhabi Education Council’s (Adec) new app to find out.

Adec’s new electronic application is designed to assist parents and stakeholders to learn more about school merging system in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the council said in a media statement.

The app will help provide parents via interactive maps with information concerning school locations where their children will be transferred to in the academic year 2013/2014.

Adec announced that, during the new academic year, 11 new schools will be opened, including six in Abu Dhabi and five in Al-Ain.

The new app provides parents with interactive maps in Arabic and English enabling them to recognise new schools or those to be closed through various colors that are shown in the keymap/legend.

Through using a student ID, parents will be able to identify previous schools as well as new school locations that will appear on the map. The map also shows illustrations of schools to be closed and merged into new school buildings, in addition to student placement and transport of students to and from schools.

Mohammad Salem Al-Dhaheri, Adec’s Executive Director of School Operations, said that providing students with state-of-the-art school buildings comes in line with Abu Dhabi government’s efforts to establish world-class school facilities that would provide students and teachers with an attractive educational environment.

Al-Dhaheri pointed out that the new school facilities have large capacities that can accommodate up to 1,500 students and aim to optimize utilization of school resources, reduce the cost of annual operational processes, minimize the daily transportation load, invest human and financial resources and save time and effort.

“The merging plan takes into account geographical locations to best serve students. The new application shall clarify merger plan and student distribution among schools using student ID or school name and it provides detailed data regarding schools,” added Al-Dhaheri.

According to the plan, the following schools shall be merged or the students of which shall be transferred and distributed/relocated to other schools as follows:
