Education Secretary Dr Uke Kombra said in a statement yesterday a circular dated Feb 1, 2016 will be sent to all schools this week.
Dr Kombra had announce on January 21 the imposition of project fees this year.
However he said the reintroduction of project fees in 2016 has already been misapplied by some schools.
"Until an NEC decision is made, no school is to charge and collect any project fee."
"If any school has collected project fees, those funds are to be held until NEC reaches a decision," Dr Kombra said.
