An official with the Education and Culture Ministry said that the Jakarta International School (JIS) has been given a week to complete and submit its request for a kindergarten establishment and operational permit.

Lydia Freyani Hawadi, the ministry's director-general for informal and non-formal early childhood education (PAUDNI), said the school was currently aiming to fulfill the requirements.

'€œThe school principal tells us, however, that he is having difficulty completing the requirements,'€ she said.

Lydia acknowledged that she was first made aware of the absence of a permit after conducting an annual evaluation of the school in January.

'€œThe school's management thought that the permit for the kindergarten was the same as the permit that they use for the elementary school,'€ she said.

The reputable school has come under fire after a kindergarten student claimed that he had been sexually assaulted by some of the school's outsourced cleaners.(idb/dic)
