Under the Uganda Teacher School Effectiveness Project, supported by a US$100 million grant from the Global Partnership for Education, the country has introduced an electronic inspection system. Launched in November 2016, the three-year e-inspection called Integrated Inspection System (IIS) is being piloted in 1,000 schools distributed in 46 districts where interventions such as improving reading, constructing classrooms, training teachers and head teachers, among others, are undertaken under the UTSEP.
