Hind Al Mula, Head of Community Participation in KHDA

The director-general of KHDA
, Dr Abdullah Al Karam, said that the KHDA
has a policy where schools, that have scored 'weak', are not allowed to expand until they improve their ratings.
However, based on KHDA
approvals, schools may extend or reduce winter break (four weeks or two weeks).
The success of the program is a testament to the foresight and leadership of Dubai as an innovation hub, and we are very excited to collaborate with the KHDA
and contribute towards shaping the future of education.
It is admirable that the KHDA
is looking into this to prevent some dubious charges that a minority of schools may be trying to levy to generate extra revenue.
By 2020 we expect to see 110 new or expanded schools in Dubai providing seats for around 360,000 students," said Amal Bel Hasa, Acting Chief of Regulation and permit commission, KHDA
