Lagos teachers will be given lesson guides written by local curriculum experts. The lesson guides provide teachers with step-by-step instructions on how to teach each lesson most effectively. Teachers will receive a lesson guide for every single lesson they teach. Teachers are expected to follow the lesson guides closely for every class. This is to make sure that pupils receive the maximum amount of instruction possible each day. These lesson guides are delivered to teachers each day on a special tablet that each teacher uses during their lessons.

There are two ways to enroll into Lagos State EKOEXCEL schools, enrollment into Pre primary and  primary 1 grades and registration into primaries 2 to 5.

Textbooks are only for pupils on the EKOEXCEL program
