Validity of accreditation: Three years

(The validity of accreditation is normally three years. However, in view that lunch provision and food arrangement in schools are affected in varying degrees since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the 2019/20 school year, the ESAS will make special arrangement accordingly. The validity of accreditation for all schools will be extended for one year in the 2022/23 school year, that is the validity of accreditation will automatically be adjusted to four years. The Department will make timely review and adjustment on the future development of the ESAS in view of changes in epidemic situation.)
