The meeting was centered on discussions of challenges they face at their Schools in the implementation of the Free Senior High School (FSHS) Government Policy, especially challenges of erratic supply of food to schools  and financial constraints; delays in the release of monies to schools and also the releases that are generally done in bits, affecting the smooth running of the schools.

CHASS has resolved that by the 31st December 2021, Government and for that matter the Ghana Education Service (GES) must release the full complement of the outstanding monies and food supplies to schools which include:
