Respectively, 31% and 28% of pre-school, fundamental and secondary school of Nippes and Grand'Anse are either destroyed or damaged. To date, 8 schools have been rehabilitated.

The Ministry of Education is currently conducting an evaluation of schools serving as temporary shelters to conduct a next reopening of classes in the most affected departments https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-19022-haiti-politic-towards-a-gradual-resumption-of-activities-in-the-great-south.html

Alongside an evaluation mission, already on the ground, which identifies and quantifies the affected schools, another mission is at work, including representatives of the academic engineering for technical assessment of the buildings concerned.
