THE Ministry of Education has so far disbursed a total of $44,975,409 to primary and secondary schools that qualify for the term one and two fee free grant.

It is confirmed that only one secondary school is yet to receive a second fee grant.

"The final term grant is in progress to be submitted to the schools.
