C) Physical targets for 2005-2006 10 new schools bifurcation /

Upgradation as per requirement

It is common knowledge that the bright students of the not too well to do families are put to a disadvantage because they are made to study in association with the mediocre students. This kind of heterogeneous grouping of the students leads to the dampening of the spirits of the bright students. As a result, they get lost in a crowd and competitive spirit is gone.
These bright students can not afford to pay huge sum of money as fees in public schools and these students can surely be an asset to the community and the nation if they are provided with guidance and the avenues within the affordable limits i.e. free education as per the Government school norms. There is need for capacity building in our infrastructure with the following objectives :
a) To  identify schools where these students can be catered  to as per their mental and academic ability.

b) To draw out a plan to strengthen such schools.

c) To  provide staff in these schools who can match the  mental thrust of these bright students.

d) To  open up avenues for career coaching for preparing  these students with vast potential for competitive examinations.

The target of admission to those schools will be as follows-


The admission will be allowed to classes VI, IX & XI


The admission will be allowed to classes VI, VII, IX, X, XI, XII


The entire school will have all the classes i.e. class VI to XII in the new scheme

These schools  will be provided with  the  complete  infra-structure and facilities for Computer  Education - this will not be a mere literacy  programme.  In fact in these schools all the facilities  will  exist for providing Computer Education as an Elective subject and  also as viable support for learning other subjects in the curriculum
The  complete  modern technological hardware  will  be  made available to these schools. This will include OHP, VCR, VCR Projectors,  Latest  PA systems, Connection  of  the  school Computer  System  to  the INTERNET for the  students  to  be Globally connected.
In addition all the innovative teaching learning process will be encouraged and duly supported.
The  school Principal and the members of the academic  staff will  receive  constant updating in the latest  developments  and experiment in the field of education.
These schools will in fact be better equipped than  any  of the public schools. Number of these ability schools will be limited to one school in each district.
Funds will also be provided for updation of laboratories, libraries, school furniture and other contingent needs in these schools. Provision is also made for expenditure on advertisement for admission. Presently, 15 P.V.V.s are functioning in Delhi  in  all the educational districts. new PVVs are proposed to be opened during 2005-06 as per requirement.

The main objective of the scheme is to cater to the needs of schools drop-outs, housewives, personnel of armed or paramilitary forces who are posted at far flung areas and who have a desire to continue their studies. Persons of these categories are enrolled in classes XI to XII.
Those who cannot afford to join regular schools due to  one reason or other and want to learn while earning can join the  Correspondence  Courses. The Patrachar  Vidyalaya  is first institute of its kind in NCT of Delhi to impart  education at Sec. and Sr.Sec. level through Correspondence courses in  all the  three  streams viz. Humanities, Commerce  and  Science.  The continuance  of  the  Scheme is  justified  by  the number of students benefited by it.
The Vidyalaya has to organize many programmes so  that  the students  are in a position to study. The study material in  the shape of Printed lessons in all the subject is supplied to  every student.  Contact classes are arranged at ten centers  in  Delhi for  about 25 days. These classes are run on Sundays and Holidays The Students are asked to solve the question in the Assignments at the end of each session. Remedial classes are run  for Board Class students(XI and XII Classes) so that they learn how to attempt questions in the Examination.
The above programmes are organised besides regular  features like  finalization of Admission, submission of Examination  Forms to the C.B.S.E., Receipt of Examination Fees, Admit Card and  its dispatch  to the students, Supply of Study Material, Receipt  of Examination Result, Mark Sheet Etc. from C.B.S.E.,s its  dispatch to  students, Preparation of provisional Certificates  and  its dispatch  to  Students and Finally Receipt of  Certificates  from C.B.S.E. and it Dispatch.

11-B GIA TO STATE OPEN SCHOOL (Rs. 50.00 lakhs)
With the recent amendment in constitution, Government has made it compulsory for states to provide elementary education to children in the age group of 6 to 14 years. To achieve this objective, government has launched various programmes including Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan all over the country. It is a fact that formal education alone cannot be adequate in fulfilling state’s commitment to universal education. It has become necessary to mobilize all possible strategies and approaches to educate children in this age group.
Besides formal education, distance education or education through correspondence has been one of the projects to provide alternate education to the students. Delhi Government initiated a programme of education though correspondence in 1968. Under the programme, education is imparted through correspondence to students of class Xth, and XII th. More than 30,000 students take benefit of the said scheme every year.
It has been noted that Patrachar Vidyalaya could not fulfil the objectives of education especially, it does not cater to drop out students from primary schools and those who have not taken a formal education upto Class VIIIth. Patrachar Vidyalaya primarily caters to the need of the students from Classes X th, XI th and XII th. Education below this level is not provided in any form through Patrachar Vidyalaya. Further, it has limitation of time for admission, as students of Patrachar Vidyalaya have to get themselves enrolled from July to December and those who are not able to get themselves registered within this period, remain without school education. Further, Patrachar Vidyalaya finds it difficult to organize practical classes for students studying Science, Home Science and Geography.
In order to overcome these problems and also to broad base the spectrum of distance education, government has decided to set up State Open School in Delhi. This was in response to policy of Government of India, to set up an Open School at the state level in collaboration with National Open School as a Resource Agency, so that the national goal of providing school education to the maximum possible number of children is achieved. It will be an autonomous organisation of Govt. of Delhi. The State Open School will be registered as a Society under the Registration of Societies Act, 1860. The Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Society will spell out the objectives and functions of the Society. The State Open School shall be set up on the same lines as the National Open School, which will act as Resource Agency to operationalise it. Although the National Open School has its headquarter at Delhi, it can only take a limited number of students due to its policy of limiting the number of students to 500 per study center. The remaining students will be able to take advantage of distance education through the State Open School.
The society will have a Governing Council. The Governing Council shall have the responsibility of guiding the Society by providing sound and professional advice. It would also provide a vision and give broad policy directions to the Society. It shall receive and critically examine and deliberate on the Annual Review Report of the Society and it will receive and approve the Annual Budget of the Society. Further, there will be an Executive Board which will have all powers of the Society to manage its affairs and enable it to function smoothly and effectively. It shall however, exercise these powers within the context and would be bounded by the objectives of the Society and advice it receives from the Governing Council. The broad rules and regulations of the State Open School Society would be spelt out in the Memorandum and Articles of the Association of the Society. The existing staff of the School of the Correspondence Courses will have the liberty to opt for employment in the Society and those not found suitable for Society, shall be adjusted in the Directorate of Education.
The society will offer a foundation course to the students in the age upto 14 years that would be equal to class VIII th standard.
No public examination will be conducted for students under going the foundation course. These students will be eligible for taking admission in Secondary classes without the necessity of passing the class VIII th examination through formal education system. The foundation Course would cater to the drop outs of formal primary education. Open School will hold examination twice i.e. in March and November in a year. There will be no age limit for any class.
Under the new system, the students will have the liberty to take examination in phases and can complete the course in a period of five years and he will also have the opportunity to clear all the subjects at Secondary or Sr. Secondary level in nine attempts. It will offer X th pass students an opportunity to appear in class XII th after a gap of one year without qualifying class XI.
Open School will offer an opportunity to those students who have appeared in CBSE but could not qualify in all the subjects to appear in examination in the remaining subjects with open school for certification.
The school will provide certification both at Secondary and Sr. Secondary level.
The State Open School will conduct its own examinations. The Open School will be a certifying body after it has obtained the approval of Competent Authority.
After the conversion of Patrachar Vidalaya into State Open School the students will be benefited in the following manner:

  1. They will be able to register themselves at any time and get themselves examined when they find themselves ready to do so.

  2. They will appear at the examination at their will either in all the subjects or one subject at a time.

  3. Students will have the option of choosing subjects/streams/scheme of studies according to their capabilities

  4. The problem of drop out in Delhi will be minimized.

In general, State Open School will provide enough opportunity to solve problems of drop-outs and non-formal education system and would ease out admission problems of such students in Govt. Schools.

The Open School shall operate through accredited institutions. These institutions will work like field offices of the Open School. The students can get admissions, take study material through these centres. The contact classes will also be held through these accredited institutions. A minimum of 40 classes will be held in these Centres to clear doubts and problems faced by the students, check learning programmes, perform practicals in science and other related subjects, to get tutoring in specific and difficult subject areas, to get assignments corrected by teachers and to discuss study programmes, to complete their assignments with other students in groups. To begin with, there will be 35 Study Centres in Delhi which will impart education through open schools all over Delhi. One Study Centre will not have more than 500 students. The open system of learning will have the flexibility to increase or decrease no. of Study Centres depending upon the no. of students to be enrolled.
The Society will incur expenditure on development and printing of study material, on engaging teachers for contact classes, evaluation of answer sheets, and holding examinations. The Open School will generate income by way of charging admission and examination fee and also by sale of prospectus. Admission fee will include the charges for study material. The Society will eventually be a self-sustaining revenue generating body.
The Government will provide grant-in-aid to the society in four equal installments. The Pattern of Assistance to the society shall be prepared and submitted to Finance Department separately. The Grant-in-aid shall be reduced successively during the 10th Plan itself starting from the year of the opening of the school. At the end of the Plan, the issue of taking grant-in-aid for the school in the 11th Five Year Plan shall be reviewed as it is expected that it should be able to generate enough resources on its own to meet the expenditure.
An annual outlay of Rs.50.00 lakhs has been approved under the Plan Scheme, “GIA to State Open School” during Annual Plan 2005-06 .

This  scheme envisages educating students  of  Govt. schools about  Indian  Culture and History by sending them to  places  of historical  importance  in India as well as  for  furtherance  of educational and cultural pursuits.
