Published on

The Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) ratings for schools in Dubai are significant as they provide a clear picture to parents about each school. These ratings are conducted by KHDA inspections, which can be strict. But inadvertently, some schools are unable to keep track of the different aspects of KHDA inspections and miss out despite having the quality. To tackle these situations, Edsys, leading education software provider has introduced modules that send notifications to school authorities reminding them of the different aspects of KHDA inspections.
