During a Dewan Rakyat session on March 6, Deputy Education Minister Lim Hui Ying disclosed that the Ministry of Education (MoE) intends to enhance and revise current guidelines for constructing new schools to expedite their completion. She highlighted the importance of the review as the present guidelines could take between five to ten years to construct a school. Responding to a supplementary question from Rodziah Ismail (PH-Ampang) on whether the ministry was considering updating the guidelines, Lim Hui Ying confirmed that the ministry was committed to reducing construction time.

According to Lim Hui Ying, the MoE solicits input and recommendations for constructing schools through an application made by the State Education Department (JPN). Once received, an evaluation is conducted based on the Planning Guidelines for Urban and Rural Community Facilities in Peninsular Malaysia, formulated by the Department of Urban and Rural Planning (PLANMalaysia) under the Ministry of Local Government Development (KPKT). She added that in addition to land availability, other factors considered include the number and capacity of existing schools in the vicinity, population density in the surrounding area, coverage of the catchment area, and area development plans determined through consultations with local government authorities.
