According to Beritadewata.com, tighter monitoring of foreigners living in Bali and international schools operating in Denpasar have shown that the Bali International School (BIS) is only legally licensed to operate a grade school, yet continues to receive students for junior high and senior high classes.

The Bali International School is the oldest operating school established on the Island.

This was disclosed by the Head of the Middle Education at the Department of Education and Sport (Disdikpora) for Denpasar, Wayan Suparta, while he was doing a monitoring tour of foreign schools on Tuesday, August 5, 2014.

The “monitoring team” included elements from immigration, the police and other agencies. The monitoring team discovered a number of foreigners working illegally at the schools while their working permits were still in the approval process.

Immigration authorities participating in the monitoring tour discovered foreign teachers working at the international schools before their working permits had been formally issued. Daud Satry Bhirawa warned foreign teachers not to commence work before their work permits were officially  in hand.

Wayan Suparta, heading the monitoring team, said: “We have received and reviewed the operational permits of the Bali International School. We discovered that the school only has a permit to operate a grade school. Despite this fact, they continue to accept student at the junior high and senior high level.”

International Schools must hold a license to operate issued by Ministry of Education accompanied by a recommendation issued by Disdikpora-Denpasar.

Added Suparta, “We hope the school (BIS) will quickly process its permits.” He confirmed that all “national plus” schools (Indonesian, but not international schools) in Denpasar have completed their permit and licensing requirements in compliance with the current rules.

The Manager of the Dyatmika School, Lilawati, thanked the monitoring team for their visit and their guidance on how to meet all licensing and permit requirements. The Dyatmika International Plus School employs 23 foreign teachers among its roster of 147 teachers. Of the 23 foreign teachers, 10 are awaiting final approval of their teaching and working permits.

Lilawati said the Dyatmika School would follow guidelines delivered by the monitoring team and would not allow the 10 foreign teachers to work until their permits were formally issued.
