The CBSE State Kalotsav -2015 will be a joint venture by the All Kerala CBSE Schools Management Association and the Confederation of Kerala Sahodaya Complexes. It is the first time in the history of the CBSE fraternity in Kerala that both these organizations have taken a decision to discontinue the practice of holding separate Kalotsav for the students in the state and join hands to co host the Kalotsav with a common Manual.
Kerala State CBSE Schools Management Association is registered under the Travancore- Cochin Literary, Scientific and Charitable Societies Registration Act 1955 and provides a forum to exchange views in the area of imparting education and running the schools by promoting amity, good relations and co- operation. This organization aims at taking care of all the issues related to the management of CBSE schools in the state.

A Sahodaya School Complex is a cluster of CBSE affiliated schools coming together to share their innovative practices in all aspects of school education and also providing support services for teachers and students. Sahodaya introduces the relevance of co-operative learning and collaborative networking. At present there are about 20 such Sahodaya clusters in Kerala.

The CONFEDERATION OF KERALA SAHODAYACOMPLEXES is an independent academic body consisting of the various Sahodayas and is registered under the Travancore- Cochin Literary, Scientific and Charitable Societies Registration Act 1955.

After much deliberations and discussions, the joint executive committee meeting of the Kerala State CBSE Schools Management Association and the Confederation of Kerala Sahodaya Complexes held at Hotel Presidency, Ernakulam on 17th August 2015 decided to join hands to hold a common Kalotsav for all the CBSE affiliated schools in the state in November 2015. The said meeting took a policy decision to organize preliminary rounds of competition at Sahodaya level. A school can be a member of only one shaodaya and the winners at the sahodaya level competition shall be registered for the state level completions by the office bearers of the respective sahodyas. The same meeting decided to have all the banners and posters for the Kalotsav be printed as CBSE STATE KALOTTSAV-2015, co-hosted by KERALA CBSE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION & CONFEDERATION OF KERALA SAHODAYA COMPLEXES and formed a 13 member team for the conduct of the Kalotsav.
This MANUAL for the CBSE STATE KALOTSAV 2015 is prepared in line with the Kerala State School Kalotsav Manual. This is approved both by the CBSE Management association and the Confederation of Kerala Sahodaya Complexes

We hope that CBSE State Kalotsav 2015 will be a great event in the history of the CBSE fraternity in Kerala and will definitely pave way for exploring common areas of activities among different organizations working for the progress of the CBSE schools in the state.
