Expression of Interest for Enrollment in Schools (INTERIM Service to eEnrollment)

Innovative response

The enrollment of children in the first grade of elementary schools, which traditionally begins on April 1, will start later this year due to the current situation and the state of emergency. As of Wednesday, April 1, 2020, instead of enrollment, parents and other legal representatives were encouraged to use the interim service, called Expression of Interest, through the new eGovernment Portal. The aim of this service was to establish the "initial" parent-school contact and to assure the parents that the school is aware of their intention to enroll their children. On the other hand, the service helped the schools to optimize the number and classes and to better prepare for the next school year.

Specific issues addressed and anticipated impact

The service was intended for all parents on the territory of the entire Republic of Serbia who are planning to enroll their children in the first grade of elementary school this year. The service is an interim service and will be available until the Ministry of Education officially launches the eEnrollment service, ecpected on May 28, 2020.
