School Incentives

In order to meet the objectives of the other components and make inter-ethnic integration in education successful, improving learning environments as an incentive is a key to success. Therefore, Component 4 will provide renovations to the schools; doing so, the communities will be involved which will enhance the collaboration among the stakeholders coming from school staff, school boards, parent councils and municipalities. Key stakeholders will be actively involved in adoption of many decisions, providing the necessary documents and designs and will take part in the implementation of many steps together with the members of Project team. Our goals will be accomplished through:

  • Establishing a School Renovation Team (SRT), comprised of school staff, school boards, parents, municipality and local community, who will work together and find out solutions for overcoming the problems and meeting the school needs;
  • Strengthening the capacities of the school staff, school boards, parents, municipal officials and community in respecting the negotiation principles and setting up priorities for school renovation;
  • Renovating of ten school buildings over the course of one year, i.e. 40 school buildings during the project’s lifetime with continuous participation and mutual cooperation of the SRT members;
  • Strengthening the capacities of the school staff, school boards, parents, municipal officials and community to draft and adopt plans and budgets for maintenance of school facilities;
  • Training for the technical staff for maintenance of the school facilities.

All renovations will include improvements such as ramps to ensure schools are accessible to people with disabilities. This component will be funded by the United States European Command (EUCOM).
