QUAL EDUC IN RUR AREAS OF MD (en)

The main objective of the Quality Education in the Rural Areas of Moldova Project is to increase the quality of education in rural areas in Moldova. This restructuring paper extends the closing date of the Project from May 30, 2012 until October 31, 2012. This will be the Project's second extension for a cumulative period of 29 months. In line with its Project Development Objective (PDO), the Project has continuously contributed to improving the quality of education in the rural areas of Moldova. Since its approval, the Project has steadily moved toward achieving its PDO which has, throughout its lifetime, oscillated between the ratings of moderately satisfactory and satisfactory. The latter has been the rating for the past twelve months. The PDO is measured through the improvements in average learning in rural schools and the reduction in the gap in achievements between rural and urban schools. The Project has, moreover, served as a catalyst in jumpstarting education efficiency reform measures outlined in the Government's Education Reform Program. This five-month extension is being sought in order to avoid a financing gap for the Project as the Additional Financing (AF) of the Project, which was approved by the Board on March 20, 2012, is not expected to be effective before the current closing date of May 30, 2012. The AF will be effective once it is ratified by the Parliament of Moldova which could take up to five months. The original Project was financed through a Grant and a Credit in the amounts of SDR 3.6 million each (US$5 million equivalent, for a total of US$10 million equivalent) to be implemented over a four-year period. The Project was approved on February 14, 2006, and became effective on August 7, 2006.
